I just wanted to share some news with all of you: My new book, FROM KRAKOW TO KRYPTON: JEWS AND COMIC BOOKS, is out now from JPS!!
FROM KRAKOW TO KRYPTON is a comprehensive volume which showcases the unique contribution Jews have made to this American art form. The book features original interviews with such legendary comics creators as Stan Lee, Joe Kubert, Paul Levitz, Al Jaffee, Jerry Robinson, Art Spiegelman, Judd Winick, Chris Claremont, Trina Robbins, Drew Friedman, Will Eisner, and more. Lavishly illustrated with over 100 full-color drawings and photos, FROM KRAKOW TO KRYPTON boasts a foreword by acclaimed graphic novelists Harvey Pekar and J.T. Waldman.
And I’ll be talking about my book on the Joey Reynolds Show tonight Sept 5th (well technically early tomorrow morning Sept 6th) at some point between 12am and 2am EST. The show is on WOR Radio 710AM.
