The Diamond Retailer Summit is a whirlwind of activities starting Wednesday night and running straight through Friday afternoon. That's why you'll need some time to kick back, relax, and reflect on the good times and new things you learned at the Summit Closing Party, sponsored by Dynamite Entertainment and held at Geppi's Entertainment Mueseum (GEM).
They always say when one door closes, a new one opens and that's really true at this year's Closing Party! We'll be celebrating the end of the Summit, all the while enjoying the opening of GEM's newest exhibit dedicated to works of Will Eisner! You won't want to miss this!

75 Spirited Years: Will Eisner & The Spirit - Geppi's Entertainment Museum
Grand Opening: Friday, September 25th 7:30pm-9:30pm
Will Eisner's legacy in the world of comics is one of challenging the medium for all it was worth as he pushed the limits of form and function to get the greatest storytelling results possible.
In addition to championing the graphic novel, turning out "how to" instructions for the military, and inspiring multiple generations of creators, 75 years ago this master of the comic art form created The Spirit!
Join Geppi's Museum for a retrospective on 75 years of The Spirit and a sampling of Will Eisner’s other great works 75 Spirited Years: Will Eisner & The Spirit. Curated by Eisner’s longtime friend, colleague and publisher Denis Kitchen, who will also be in attendance, this exhibit showcases more than 50 pieces of original art and more!
