    Mentsch in Tights: How Jewish History & Culture, Shaped The Comic Book Superhero

    Not only do comic book superheroes Batman and Superman disguise themselves to save the world, but, they also disguise their creators Jewish heritage and values. Since their creation in the 1930's comic books have become a part of our nation's vocabulary, forever changing the way we think about stories, pictures, and what makes a hero. Unmask the Jewish subtexts of these stories and discover the unique contributions Jews have made to this American art form.
