This Sunday, November 13th, I’ll be appearing at the first-ever Jewish ComicCon —at an Orthodox synagogue in Brooklyn, where else?
Here’s the updated schedule…which adds me to an 11am panel on The Jewish Roots of Comics, in addition to my previously scheduled interview/panel at 10am.
10:00 AM – 11:00 AM – EISNER, KIRBY, SIEGEL, ETC.: THE JEWISH ROOTS OF COMICS — It’s a fact that many of the founders of the comic book industry were Jewish. Why did comics bloom from the Jewish community? Why did Jewish creators mostly hide their heritage in the early years? Let’s travel back to the fascinating Golden Age of comics! Moderated by Arie Kaplan/Danny Fingeroth with Julian Voloj (Joe Shuster graphic novel) and more. (I’ve just been added.)
11:00 AM – 12:00 AM – SPOTLIGHT ON MORT GERBERG — Join legendary New Yorker cartoonist Mort Gerberg as he talks about his career and how cartooning has evolved incredibly in the past 40 years. Moderated by Danny Fingeroth.
After the panel, I’ll be at my booth for a few hours, to greet and shmooze, sell and autograph copies of my book, “Cartooning: the Art and the Business,” and be available to do commissioned drawings.
