JEWISH IN AMERICA, set of graphic novels
Rising star and award-winning comics writer Neil Kleid explores two aspects of being Jewish in America in this banded set of his two highly praised graphic novels: Brownsville and The Big Kahn. Brownsville presents factually the rise and fall of ‘Murder, Inc.’, a group of assassin for hire Jews in the mob in the twenties. The Big Kahn, with its Rabbi who turns out to have never been Jewish, explores the very nature of faith.
