I admit it. Maybe it was all the subscriptions to Wired and Business 2.0 and other things that shocked my parents in a long-overdue rebellion. But this year, I considered something I’d never considered before. But I spent so much time in consideration of this prospect that I lost my chance and missed the deadline.
But for those of you who ARE attending The New York Comic Con this weekend in New York City, I wanted to make you aware of the following session, and invite any of you who are going to report back to us on how things went.
“The Jewish Side of Comics” is scheduled to take place on 2/25/2007 at 4:00 PM in Room 1E04, and features Danny Fingeroth, Rabbi Simcha Weinstein, Stan Mack, Josef (Yosef) Rubinstein and Neil Kleid, and will be moderated by Steven Bergson.
Rabbi Weinstein will be talking about Biblical archetypes of superheroes. Danny will be talking about the Jewish writers of superhero stories. Josef Rubinstein will talk about 2 books he’s working on for Mahrwood Press: Balm in Gilead and Journeys : The Collected Edition. Stan Mack will talk about a series of Jewish historical fiction graphic novels he’s working on. Neil Kleid will tale about the cartoon memoir of his Orthodox developmentally disabled younger brother, titled “Migdal David”, to be published by Seraphic Press.
I can’t make it; will be working and Israel Nonstopping…but if anyone goes, please report back to the Jewlicious home office in New York.
Shabbat shalom and may the Force be with you.
