Comic Con-ukkah! Crown Heights shul hosts Jewish cartoon fest


It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s super-mensch!

More than a dozen Jewish comic book artists will converge at Congregation Kol Israel, a Modern Orthodox shul in Crown Heights, on Nov. 13 to present and discuss their work at the first ever Jewish "Comic Con" But the event isn’t exclusively for Jews — gentiles are most welcome to come and learn about the Semitic roots of the graphic literary medium, according to organizers.
