Fax machines, copiers and typewriters -- no matter what the brand -- have one thing in common. They break down.It's on that premise that Baltimore's Eisner & Associates has designed a $4.5 million advertising campaign for Minolta Corp. business equipment dealers nationwide.The contract will give almost an 8 percent boost to Eisner's annual billings of $57 million and could attract increased national attention to the agency's work.The humorous campaign paints the Minolta dealer as a hero, saving its clients more quickly and efficiently than "the other guys" from what can be inconvenient, and sometimes costly, breakdowns in business machines.

When it comes to comic-book heroes, Will Eisner's Spirit has always played by his own rules - which explains why he's so revered by fans and artists, even more than a half-century after his adventures stopped being published regularly. This week, a new generation of moviegoers are being introduced to The Spirit, thanks to the Frank Miller-directed film that opened in theaters yesterday. Miller, the man who reinvented Batman as The Dark Knight back in the 1980s, was a long-time protege of Eisner, who introduced The Spirit in 1940.

In a muggy hotel banquet room two years ago, Steve Eisner stood at a podium clutching the validation of 30 years of toil: a golden statuette in the shape of four letter A's. It was an O'Toole, given by the American Association of Advertising Agencies, to the most creative, mid-size firm in America. Whatever those in the audience believed, Eisner took the award as the realization of his dream to transform a prominent but entirely local advertising agency into a powerhouse capable of competing with Madison Avenue.

The Maryland Lottery will start running commercials and other advertising as early next week, ending a nearly monthlong respite it was forced to take when its advertising agency abruptly went out of business. Lottery officials said yesterday that they hired Trahan, Burden & Charles (TBC) to create an advertising campaign for the state agency. Its former ad agency, Eisner Communications, stopped operating last month because it ran out of money. Eisner had many high-profile clients that it left in the lurch, including Provident Bank and the National Aquarium in Baltimore.

Eisner Communications, once one of Baltimore's most successful and prolific advertising agencies and a local institution since 1939, abruptly shut the business yesterday, saying it ran out of money. The closing marks the culmination of troubling times that began last year when Eisner lost a $20 million US Airways account after the Arlington, Va.-based airline merged with America West Airlines. But Eisner still handled some of the area's largest advertising accounts, helping to sell the National Aquarium in Baltimore, Provident Bank and the Maryland Lottery among others.
