[Will Eisner; Dave Schreiner; Tamara Sibert] -- A black-and-white graphic novel chronicle of the rise, decline, and rebirth of a neighborhood in the South Bronx over the course of more than one hundred years.

Obviously a composite neighborhood, Dropsie Avenue shows the struggles seen in many old cities as the United States grew. Eisner’s storytelling in this book takes a little getting used too. The final piece, Dropsie Avenue, may start out slow, but by the final panel, readers’ mouths may drop with Eisner’s sincere history of the imaginary Bronx neighborhood over the span of a hundred years from to The strongest theme to come from this story focuses on xenophobia and humankind’s constant fear of the outsider.

    In the third part of the novel, "Dropsie Avenue", Eisner tells the story of the rise and fall of the neighborhood itself, beginning in the s when most of the Bronx was still farmland. Over time, English settlers bought the land and built houses, which were in turn bought and lived in by the Irish. The first graphic novel—a mesmerizing fictional chronicle of a universal American experience. Through a quartet of four interwoven stories, A Contract With God express the joy, exuberance, tragedy, and drama of life on the mythical Dropsie Avenue in the Bronx. This is the legendary book that launched a new art form and reaffirmed Will Eisner as one of the great pioneers of American graphics.
