The Graphic Details book is here!










It’s finally here… Graphic Details:  Jewish Women’s Confessional Comics in Essays and Interviews is based on the exhibit I co-curated.  It’s published by McFarland.

I contributed a bunch of essays on some of the amazing artists in the show, including Bernice Eisenstein, Sarah Glidden, Sarah Lazarovic, and Laurie Sandell.

“A much-needed book… While supplying added depth for people who are already fans of the medium, it gives insights to non-fans about why comics are so popular.” -Lilith

This just in: “Graphic Details: Confessional Comics by Jewish Women” to open at Ohio State University!

This just in!  Graphic Details will open at the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum at Ohio State University in Columbus from March 28-July 15!  The show, which I co-curated, just ended a terrific run at London’s Space Station 65 gallery.   Graphic Details has thrilled audiences in San Francisco, New York, Toronto, Washington, DC, Miami Beach, and Portland.  It was inspired by a story I wrote for the Forward, America’s national Jewish newspaper. The Forward is sponsoring Graphic Details.
