Chat du Rabbin, JLU #16, & Shortpacked!

(1) from

The Beguiling's Chris Butcher reports on the Joann Sfar personal appearance interview and refers to the 4th French book in the Rabbi's Cat series. I did think the ending of the English edition (which only collected the first 3 books) was weak ; now I know that it wasn't the true ending. The 4th French book, called Le Paradis Terrestre may already be ordered through the French Amazon website.

There's a link to a preview page at

JUSTICE LEAGUE UNLIMITED #16: This comic is fun. And what's more fun than a Christmas comic?...Two Christmas comics! This week's JLU is the special holiday issue (and they even take time out to remind you the holiday is more than just Christmas: Atom-Smasher, who's Jewish, and Hawkgirl, who's completely from another planet, all get in the "holiday spirit" too!).

What happens when you get some Jewish kid, a girl with ADD, a social recluse, a ninja, a former President, and a sociopath all working together in a toy store? Well, mostly pop culture jokes, it seems.

I haven't read much of Shortpacked! yet myself, but it seems that Ethan Siegal is a Jewish character.

First Post

This is the first post for the Jewish Comics blog.

I'm contemplating using this blog to post about Jewish comics which have not yet been discussed in my Jewish Comics forum at and which have not yet been added in my Jews in Comics bibliography at

I will be speaking on the topic "Maus and Beyond: Holocaust Comics" at the next meeting of the South Florida Association of Jewish Libraries on Dec. 19th from 11:45 AM - 2:45 PM.
