Examining a wide range of comics and graphic novels – including works by creators such as Will Eisner, Leela Corman, Neil Gaiman, Art Spiegelman, Sarah Glidden and Joe Sacco – this book explores how comics writers and artists have tackled major issues of Jewish identity and culture. With chapters written by leading and emerging scholars in contemporary comic book studies, Visualizing Jewish Narrative highlights the ways in which Jewish comics have handled such topics as:
– Biography, autobiography, and Jewish identity
– Gender and sexuality
– Genre – from superheroes to comedy
– The Holocaust
– The Israel-Palestine conflict
– Sources in the Hebrew Bible and Jewish myth
