Jews and the Graphic Novel


Bookmark and Share

David Gantz has but together a 22 page comic book about the history and contributions that Jews have made of comic books in the 20th century.  Jews and the Graphic Novel is free to read online.  The main focus of this condensed industry is the impact of the Second World War on the industry.

There’s only so much you can cover in 22 pages and it is free.  It’s a great beginning point for a topic that’s covered by numerous books out there.  Some suggestions for those interested in the subject include:

  • From Krakow to Krypton: Jews and comic books
  • The Jewish graphic novel: critical approaches
  • Up, Up, and Oy Vey
  • Disguised as Clark Kent: Jews, Comics, and the Creation of the Superhero

You can read the free online history here.
