This scholarly book examines historical depictions of Jewish people in comics.Jewish Images in the Comics showcases more than 150 comic strips, comic books and graphic novels from all over the world, stretching over the last five centuries and featuring Jewish characters and Jewish themes.The book is divided into chapters on Anti-Semitism, the Old Testament, the Holocaust, Israel, the Golem and much more, featuring everything from well-known comics like Art Spiegelman’s Maus and the work of Will Eisner to much more obscure (and in some cases far less savory) but no less culturally and historically interesting examples of how Jewish culture has been depicted in comics.As with Stromberg’s previous two books for Fantagraphics, each strip, comic, or graphic novel is spotlighted via a short but informative 200-word essay and a representative illustration. The book is augmented by a context-setting introduction as well as an extensive source list and bibliography.Jewish Images in the Comics is the third book in a series in which Stromberg examines different phenomena in our society, as mirrored in comics. Black Images in the Comics examines the way Black people have been portrayed in comics and The Comics Go to Hell looks at how the Devil has been used as a comics character. Black & white throughout

Follow me in this sequel to Inside the Shadow in Jaffa Gate. The Temple Mount is located inside Jerusalem’s walled Old City neighborhood. The Old City is one of many neighborhoods that comprise modern Jerusalem. Up to the late 19th century, when overcrowding led to new neighborhoods outside the walls, Jerusalem was comprised of only the walled city that had existed for almost 3000 years. Today The Old City has over 30,000 residents. It is sited on the uneven crest of the Judean Hills that divides a descent to the east, to the Dead Sea and Jordan, from a descent to the west, to the Mediterranean Sea Coast of Israel. The Old City consists of residential areas and bazaars spread about in four quarters. There is an Armenian Christian Quarter, a Western Christian Quarter, a Moslem Quarter and a Jewish Quarter. The Temple Mount is a rocky plateau sitting inside and next to The Old City walls on the east and south sides, adjacent to The Moslem Quarter on the north side and The Jewish Quarter on the west side. It was the site of the Jewish Temples for over 1000 years.
When talented young writer Nathan Zuckerman makes his pilgrimage to sit at the feet of his hero, the reclusive master of American Literature, E. I. Lonoff, he soon finds himself enmeshed in the great Jewish writer's domestic life, with all its complexity, artifice and drive for artistic truth. As Nathan sits in breathlessly awkward conversation with his idol, a glimpse of a dark-haired beauty through a closing doorway leaves him reeling. He soon learns that the entrancing vision is Amy Bellette, but her position in the Lonoff household - student? mistress? - remains tantalisingly unclear. Over a disturbed and confusing dinner, Nathan gleans snippets of Amy's haunting Jewish background, and begins to draw his own fantastical conclusions...
It is 1942 and the Jews are being deported from Belgium. Separated from his parents, seven-year-old Joseph must go into hiding. He is taken in the dead of night to an orphanage, the Villa Jaune, where the benign and enigmatic Father Pons presides over a motley assortment of children. With the ever-present threat of the Gestapo growing closer, Joseph learns that the secret of survival is to conceal his Jewish heritage. Soon Joseph also discovers that Father Pons has a secret of his own: he is risking his life not only for the boys in his care, but for the Jewish faith itself. Sensitive, funny and deeply humane, Noah's Child is a simple fable that reveals the complexities of faith, bravery and the human condition.
In this new selection and translation, Peter Wortsman mines Franz Kafka's entire opus of short prose--including works published in the author's brief lifetime, posthumously published stories, journals, and letters--for narratives that sound the imaginative depths of the great German-Jewish scribe from Prague, refreshing the writer's mythic storytelling powers for a new generation of readers.
Jewish gangster isn't a term one hears much nowadays, but back when the Dodgers played in the East and liquorice cost a penny a bag, Brooklyn corners were lousy with Semitic young toughs looking for adventure and excitement - none more so than in Brownsville. This volume follows the intertwined lives of Allie Tannenbaum and Abe Rele as they escape the mean streets and lonely tenements of the East New York, make themselves into the most dangerous men in America, only to eventually send their best friends and closest allies up the river. Now in paperback.
While the 50-year run of the Peanuts newspaper strip (1950–2000) is obviously the heart and soul of Charles Schulz’s career, he also created a large amount of Peanuts material that didn’t run in the strip. This bonus 26th volume of The Complete Peanuts collects all of Schulz’s non-strip related Peanuts art: storybooks, comic book stories, single-panel gags, advertising art, book illustrations, photographs, and even a recipe. With close to 1,000 Peanuts images included, all created by Schulz himself, no true Peanuts library would be complete without this final, celebratory volume of The Complete Peanuts. As a fitting end to the volume — and the series — Schulz’s widow, Jeannie Schulz, provides an emotional introduction to the volume, as well.
In 1976, a group of young men and women coalesced around a fledgling magazine and the idea that comics could be art. In 2016, comics intended for an adult readership are reviewed favorably in the New York Times, enjoy panels devoted to them at Book Expo America, and sell in bookstores comparable to prose efforts of similar weight and intent. We Told You So: Comics as Art tells of Fantagraphics Books’ key role in helping build and shape an art movement around a discredited, ignored and fading expression of Americana the way insiders share the saga with one another other: in anecdotal form, in the words of the people who lived it and saw it happen. Comics historian and critic Tom Spurgeon and Michael Dean assemble an all-star cast of industry figures, critics, cartoonists, art objects, curios and groundbreaking publications to bring you a detailed account of Fantagraphics’ first 40 years. We Told You So is a detailed catalog of the look of a cultural awakening. It’s a story that includes appearances by Chris Ware, Art Spiegelman, Harlan Ellison, Jim Shooter, Stan Lee, Daniel Clowes, Frank Miller, Peter Bagge, Jaime Hernandez, Gilbert Hernandez, Dave Sim, Steve Geppi, Todd McFarlane and every other major figure in the arts or business end of modern comics. More than a corporate history or a fond look back, We Told You So: Comics as Art makes the warts and all case for Fantagraphics Books’ position near the heart of the modern reclamation of the comics art form.
