dc.description.abstractThis article discusses the influence of Jewish writers and artists on the comic book industry, beginning in the 1930s. The writer, Jerry Seigel and the artist Joe Shuster created Superman, which, according to the author, "heralded the beginningof the so-called 'Golden Age' of comic books..." The article traces the evolution of the comic book industry. The latter part of the 20th century, beginning in the 1980s, saw the development of the graphic novel, in part thanks to Art Spiegelman’s "Maus." Although Jewishness was not an explicit or overt theme of comic books, it is a more prominent theme of comtemporary graphic novels.
