Jews in the Funny Pages June 25, 2012 – Tags: Comics / Cartoons, graphic novel, illustrators
In the first two books of this seminal series that deals with how comics reflect the culture they emanate from, Federick Stromberg dealt with the representation of Blacks and the Devil.
For volume three he turns to the Semites. Spanning five centuries and featuring over 150 images the book becomes an instant essential reference. Chapters include Anti-Semitism, the Old Testament, the Holocaust, Israel, the Golem and the artists range from A-list types like Will Eisner and Art Spiegelman to the more obscure. Every image gets an essay and there is an extensive bibliography.
Who knew Golem was a super-hero?
