Female Orthodox Jewish Monster-Slayer

Barry Deutsch, the Portland political cartoonist known as Ampersand, published a distinctly different work in November of 2010 entitled Hereville — “yet another comic book about an 11-year-old troll-fighting Orthodox Jewish girl.”

The Huffington Post praised the book, noting that it “won the prestigious Sydney Taylor Award for older readers from the Association of Jewish Libraries” and has garnered wide critical praise. A 15-page preview of the book, originally a webcomic launched at www.girlamatic.com, can be read here.
