Jews in America: A Cartoon History
Jewish Publication Society, 2006 - History - 168 pages
Jews in America is a graphic history that uses the comic book format - an artistic expression as American as jazz - to depict five centuries of Jewish life in this country. With its blend of humor, history, and old-fashioned sentimentality, Gantz, an artist who has spent a lifetime using paper and ink to present social commentary and issues with wry wit, illustrates the prominence of Jews in American history from the time Columbus first set foot in the New World. Jews in America will appeal to readers from ages 12 to 120. Long Island, New York-based cartoonist, illustrator, author, and sculptor David Gantz has written and illustrated more than 75 children's books. His syndicated cartoon strip DudleyD ran for six years with the Herald Tribune Syndicate and his strip Don Q ran for six years with the New York Times Features Syndicate. He has also worked as a writer and illustrator for MAD magazine.
