Abstract
Many of the creators of the most famous comic books, such as “Superman”, “Spiderman”, “X-Men”, and “Batman”, as well as the founders of “MAD Magazine”, were Jewish. This title tells their stories and demonstrates how they brought a uniquely Jewish perspective to their work and to the comics industry as a whole.
