Newsarama.com reports that comics legend Will Eisner passed away on Monday night at the age of 87 due to complications from his recent open heart surgery. Eisner worked in the comics industry almost continuously since 1936, first defining modern comic book storytelling techniques in his Spirit comic strip. Later, Eisner coined the term “graphic novel” to describe longer-form comics work and arguably wrote the first one. His latest book, The Plot, is due to be published by W.W. Norton later this year.
