What happens when comics and the Synagogue collide? Jewish Comic Con has come to Brooklyn! The exhibition “POW!!! Jewish Comic Art And Influence” is curated by Jewish Art Salon founding member Joel Silverstein along with Goldie Gross and Joshua Stulman, and will run through the weekend at Congregation Kol Israel in Crown Heights.
The event explored how Jewish indentity has influenced comics, both on the page and behind the scenes, and features artwork from 32 different artists. On Sunday, there will be a panel of speakers covering topics such as the Jewish roots of Wonder Woman, and Holocaust representation in comics.
