WILL EISNER revolutionized comics with his pioneering 1978 graphic novel, “A Contract with God.” GN sales have now outgrown comic book sales and can be found in an amazing array of genres and styles. DENIS KITCHEN (“A Contract With God Curator’s Collection”), KAREN GREEN (Curator of Comics & Cartoons at Columbia), N.C. CHRISTOPHER COUCH (“Will Eisner Companion”), DEAN HASPIEL (“The Red Hook”) and PAUL LEVITZ (“Brooklyn Blood”) discuss the evolution of the graphic novel and what the future holds.
