Hi There

February 26, 2011

Howdy, my name is Daniel and this is my blog.  It is about one of my favorite things: comic books.  But it isn’t just about comic books…no, it is also about Jews.  Jews and comic books.  At first glance you might be saying “What on earth do those two things have in common?”  Well that is why I am here, to share what I have learned (and am constantly learning) about how the comic book industry and the comic book art form have been pioneered, shaped, and lead by Jews.  What’s more is that in pioneering, shaping, and leading, many comic books have been infused with a long history of Jewish stories, themes, and imagery.  It is my utmost hope that I can inform and entertain you, the reader, with my witty banter, stimulating research, and sound arguments to show the ways in which the comic book is as Jewish as it is American.  In the immortal words of Stan Lee:  ‘Nuff said!

      That’s very cool. I don’t have that. Thanks for the heads-up. A few of my favorite books on the subject are “From Krakow to Krypton”, “Disguised As Clark Kent”, “Up, Up, and Oy Vey”, and “Jews and American Comics”.
