The Jewish Graphic Novel is a lively, interdisciplinary collection of essays that addresses critically acclaimed works in this subgenre of Jewish literary and artistic culture. Featuring insightful discussions of notable figures - such as Will Eisner, Ruto Modan, Art Spiegelman, and Joann Sfar - the contributors focus on how graphic novels are increasingly being used in Holocaust memoir and fiction, and to portray Jewish identity in North America. Europe, and Israel. This comprehensive volume is a compelling representation of a major postmodern ethnic and artistic achievement.
