From the Golem to Ben Grimm, comic book art historian Arlen Schumer (author/designer, The Silver Age of Comic Book Art, Archway Publishing) surveys the Jewish influence on the creation and development of the most dominant genre in American comic books, the superhero, its antecedents in ancient, Biblical stories and myths, and the significant contributions Jews have made to the creation of the comic book itself (in 1933 by printing salesman Max Gaines, nee Ginzburg, and father of EC Comics’ founder Bill Gaines) and the evolution of comic book art in the 20th and 21st Centuries. Recorded & edited by Gerardo Vitale on September 24, 2015 at the 92 Street Y in NYC. For more:
