This sounds like a fascinating new book - although I'm not sure how I feel, personally about Jerusalem laying in ruins and Aliens taking over the place, but it sounds like one heck of a story line. If you're interested in the Jewish roots of comic book superheroes you might want to check out our website: www.newvilnareview.com where we are presently featuring an excerpt from Steven Lee Beeber's book that deals with this very topics.
