Comic books, that is!

In advance of my upcoming WEBINAR on “Jews & Comics” via NY Adventure Club on Wednesday, September 16 @ 1:00pm EST (Tix @ nyadventureclub.com), I will be discussing the subject at length with my friend, painter Joel Silverstein, who’s worked comics into his Jewish-themed body of work (joelsilversteinart.com), along with anyone else who calls in (773-897-6114):

“From the Golem to Ben Grimm and more, comic book art historian Arlen Schumer (author/designer, The Silver Age of Comic Book Art) surveys the Jewish influence on the creation and development of the American superhero, its antecedents in ancient, Biblical stories and myths, and the significant contributions Jews have made to the evolution of comic book art in the 20th and 21st Centuries.”
