Jewish Comics (purchased)

I finally bought a copy of the Pilgrimage : Two Weeks in G-d's Country by Neil Kleid, which he autographed for me.

I also bought the new Tery Laban trade paperback collection of his (& wife Patty's) syndicated comic strip "Edge City" titled Edge City, which he autographed for me. Though not all of the comic strips are explicitly Jewish, the strip is about a Jewish family and there are botyh Hanukkah and Passover storylines in the book. The cover shows Terry cutting a challah loaf while his family stands around the table, a pair of lit Sabbath candles standing on a cabinet by the window.

To see the cover, go to, which also has a link you can follow to pre-order the book.
