As viewers will learn during this episode, I'm Jewish (as if the name 'Josh Bernstein' wasn't enough of a clue). My father was born in the Old City of Jerusalem and I have spent a lot of time both living in Israel and learning about my heritage.
Alas, Josh's Jewish heritage isn't even mentioned in his Free Comic Book Day debut comic, available free at participating comic shops on May 6, 2006. You don't have to wait until then to read it, though ; an online version is available at http://waidev2.com/diggingforthetruth/index.php?Page=Comic.
