It’s pretty unusual to find blogworthy items of a non-political bent related to comics at The Huffington Post. That said, Joel Keller, whose work has appeared in the New York Times, Washington Post and Salon, posted a glowing review of the Cooke Brothers’ film, Will Eisner: Portrait of a Sequential Artist, that debuted last Thursday at the Tribeca Film Festival on the Post Web site.
Typically, I’d hesitate posting a link to an early review, but I thought Keller’s piece was an obvious exception to the rule, largely because he has no great interest in comics at all, save the recent Sin City movie and enjoying Spidey comics via The Electric Company as a child some three decades ago.
Summing it up from Keller’s review: “The sign of any good documentary is if it makes a person who wasn’t a die-hard fan of the subject or genre it’s exploring want to learn more. And Portrait does just that.”
