The Jewish Side of The Amazing Vegas Comic Con 2014

Tomorrow, comic fans will be gathering together over the next 3 days at The Amazing Vegas Comic Con (assuming they've chosen to head there, rather than the Wizard World Philadelphia Convention which got scheduled for the same weekend).

These creators include :

* Miriam Libicki is the author-illustrator of the jobnik! series (the first volume of which has been collected in trade paperback), the illustrated essays "Towards a Hot Jew: The Israeli Soldier as Fetish Object" and "Jewish Memoir Goes Pow! Zap! Oy!" & the illustrated mini-journals Ceasefire and Fierce Ease. She also contributed a story to the forthcoming Jewish Comix Anthology.

Rob Liefeld is the illustrator of stories in the Youngblood series of comics, which included the Israeli superheroine Masada.

George Perez is the illustrator of Wonder Woman #37 and #38 which had the character Rabbi Benjamin Hecht.

Joe Rubinstein is an illustrator of the 2nd Mendy and the Golem series and was a contributor to both Journeys : The Collected Edition and the Balm in Gilead anthology.

Yehudi Mercado is the author-illustrator of the graphic novel Throne of Secrets, which takes the traditional biblical tale of Queen Esther and "amps up the adventure of this historic epic".
