The role of Jewish artists/writers in comics and the graphic novel is the subject of FROM SUPERMAN TO SPIEGELMAN – COMICS AND THE GRAPHIC NOVEL. This talk, accompanied by the insightful documentary THE ART OF SPIEGELMAN, will look at the development of the graphic novel and its roots in comics, tracing the contributions of Will Eisner, Art Spiegelman and others. Spiegelman’s groundbreaking MAUS catapulted the graphic novel into the sphere of high art when it won the Pulitzer Prize.
