The great Will Eisner passed away on January 3 2005. Possibly the most remarkable thing about his career is how far ahead of his time he was - inking graphic novels about an antihero, subverting superhero comic conventions, decades before mainstream audiences were ready for these concepts.

One excellent and unexpected source of high-quality online scans of his work is Amazon.com. Their "look inside" feature has put thousands, if not tens of thousands, of extremely well scanned art images online -- not just cover art but also interior illustrations.

Follow-up: As of September 2006, the "Look Inside" feature for this book is no longer available.
