    "This compilation book is nice with some good stories that fall into each other. I was reminded of some earlier mysteries I liked. This one has a hint of religious intervention and I think it could interest those that think outside the box. I would buy more of these books simply for the quality. "

    "The stories are painfully honest and the artwork full of rich detail. If you don’t know Eisner's work, this an outstanding introduction to the master at the height of his talents."

    "A Contract With God is written by Will Eisner. A Contract With God and Other Tenement Stories re-creates the neighborhood of Will Eisner's youth through four interwoven stories. Through the four interconnected graphic stories, Eisner provides insight into the human condition while drawing on the memories of his growing. "

    "Eisner tells us that his goal in A Contract with God, a book that has become famous for being the "first" graphic novel, was to create an art work in which there is "no interruption in the flow of narrative because the picture and the text are so totally dependent on each other as to be inseparable" (preface). This is a hard trick to pull off. Equally difficult is the task of telling a coherent story that many readers will (unfavorably) judge using the standards that they apply to novels or short stories. Whatever else a graphic novel is, it doesn't fall in either of those genres. The graphic novel is much more impressionistic, more minimalistic, than even a short short story can afford to be."

    "This was quite an interesting one to read. Incredible detail and painfully honest stories makes for a very genuine and pleasure filled read. I would recommend to anyone that is a fan of "graphic novels". "

    "A Contract with God by Will Eisner is a great book to read around the holidays. It reminds you about the realness of humanity and the things we all have in common in life. "

    "Great Expectations is one of the best educational comics and graphic novels. My son read it over and over and couldn't get tired of it. It's one of those books that live in one's mind even when they grow old. "

    "If you are a true graphic novel fan, you must have it in your library. I borrowed it from the library just to check it out, and end up buying my own copy. The book is amazing. The art is amazing. Its very rich and full of author's personality. Highly recommended."

    "I'm not at all sure what Lent has to do with it, but I enjoyed A Contract With God a great deal. This was my first experience with the graphic novel format. I found the work entertaining with considerable depth. I'd recommend it no matter what religious calendar you keep."

    "Will Eisner is an incredibly balanced comic artist and writer. He has his own art style with slight character features. The reality is there in both background and text. He is also an amazing writer. I got to meet Will Eisner once at a meet and greet and he was a very down to earth kind of key. I got him to sign an old copy of Spirit i had bought long ago. So if you looking to get a comic and or artist fan a gift A Contract With God is a good way to"
