JEWISH ART SALON
Jack Kirby – Chanukah Card
PENNSYLVANIA---The Philadelphia Museum of Jewish Art and the Jewish Art Salon present: "JOMIX – Jewish Comics; Art & Derivation." From the invention of Superman by Jerry Siegel and Joe Schuster, to the graphic novel Maus by Art Spiegelman, Jewish artists and writers have served an essential and indispensable role in the comics and graphic novel industry. The title of the show, JOMIX, is a hybrid term composed from the old underground independently produced “comix”, such as Zap Comix, 1968, edgy and transgressive in nature as changed by Jewish origins and intent.
