Jews and American Comics: An Illustrated History of an American Art Form - Paul Buhle

Jews And American Comics (New Press, $29.95), edited by Paul Buhle, makes the case that “Nowhere but Hollywood…was the Jewish role so influential in a major form of popular art.” From the daily strip to the comic book to the underground to the graphic novel—there’s a straight line: from Al Capp (Li’l Abner) to Robert Crumb to Art Spiegelman, not to mention Jules Feiffer and his 50-plus year career. Buhle is interested not only in the history of comics, but in the history of Jewish identification in America.
