Annotated Bibliography for Jews and Comics, “Imperfectly”

Rabbi Yair RobinsonOn his blog, Rabbi Yair Robinson attempts to compile an initial list of comics and comics works related to Judaism. While admittedly “incomplete” and “imperfectly” done, it merits mention for its construction by an active clergyman looking at portrayals of his own faith in the medium. In addition to comics titles, he cites prose works like Arie Kaplan’s From Krakow to Krypton as essential reading (though one can read Kaplan’s own version of this overview, as well).

Other sites, such as Jewish Comics, have made similar attempts, but few seem to give mentions to works like Larry Hama’s G.I. Joe run or American Flagg. It’s incomplete, imperfect, and worth your consideration.
