From Krakow to Krypton: Jews and Comic Books
Publisher: Jewish Publication Society of AmericaFormat: Paperback
Jews created the first comic book, the first graphic novel, the first comic book convention, the first comic book specialty store, and they helped create the underground comics (or “Comix”) movement of the late '60s and early '70s. 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. From “Krakow to Krypton: Jews and Comic Books” tells their stories and demonstrates how they brought a uniquely Jewish perspective to their work and to the comics industry as a whole. Over-sized and in full color, “From Krakow to Krypton” is filled with sidebars, cartoon bubbles, comic book graphics, original design sketches, and photographs. It is a visually stunning and exhilarating history.
