Rabbi Harry Manhoff: Without Jews There Would Be No (Comic Book) Superheroes (Zoom Only)

June 20 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Virtual Program Virtual Program
Program Fee: $12.00

Superman, Batman and the Fantastic Four were all created by young Jewish men. In fact, almost all of the original DC and Marvel superheroes, except Wonder Woman, were created by Jewish writers and were drawn by Jewish artists. We will discuss the many theories of why this may be true. We will consider why, until five or ten years ago, the comic book industry was dominated by Jewish men and women, as writers, artists, pencilers and publishers. We will also look at the Jewish roots for some of these superheroes and supervillains, and the handful of characters who are identified as Jewish today. We may even read a graphic novel!

Thursday, June 20 @ 7–8:30pm on Zoom
