This event has ended.

Hadas Gallery presents the comic artwork of Al Wiesner and Joshua H. Stulman.

“Super Jew Comics” is an exhibition of original production artwork for the Jewish comic book series, Shaloman and Israeli Defense Comics. The exhibition celebrates Jewish identity in the graphic medium. Several events are planned to coincide with the exhibition, including a presentation by “Up, Up and Oy Vey” author, Rabbi Simcha Weinstein.

Shaloman, created by Al Wiesner, first appeared in Mark 1 Comics #1 in 1987. It was an instant success and the epinimously titled series began shortly thereafter. Wiesner has self-published the adventures of Shaloman ever since. His artwork fuses action, Yiddish humor, and Jewish education to create a unique hero. Wiesner’s work reveals a love of Judaism and golden age comics. Shaloman’s popularity has carried through in nearly 40 issues and four volumes. Wiesner’s artwork has been recognized in numerous articles, academic books, as well as complete collections held at the libraries of Ohio State, Michigan State Univ. and Hebrew Union College. In 2010, Al Wiesner was honored with the Inkpot Award at the San Diego Comic Con for his achievements in the graphic arts.
