The Jewish Study Center in Washington, DC is offering the course Super-Mensch: The Story of Jews and Comic Books, as part of its Fall 2006 session.

Here's the course description from the website :

Super-Mensch: The Story of Jews and Comic Books

Since the inception of the comic book industry, Jews have been involved as writers, artists, and visionaries. In fact, many heroes and villains have been based on the Jewish-American experience. We will look at how the relationship between Jews and comic books began, how it has grown, and what we can expect for the future.

Richard "Kap" Kaplowitz is a lifelong comic book collector and student of the industry. His son sells comics for "Kap's Komics" online and at comic book shows.
