In this groundbreaking collection of essays, interviews, and artwork, contributors draw upon a rich treasure trove of Jewish women's comics to explore the representation of Jewish women's bodies and bodily experience in pictorial narratives. Spanning national, cultural, and artistic borders, the essays shine a light on the significant contributions of Jewish women to comics. The volume includes major figures such as Miriam Katin, Emil Ferris, Aline Kominsky-Crumb, and Rutu Modan alongside works by artists translated for the first time into English, such as the Georgian Nino Biniashvili and the Haredi artist Batsheva Havlin. Exploring topics such as family, motherhood, miscarriages, queerness, gender and Judaism, illness, war, and the lingering impact of the Holocaust, the contributors present unique, at times deeply personal, insights into how Jewishness intersects with other forms of identity and identification. In doing so, the volume deepens our understanding of Jewish women's experiences.;
