SCI: The Jewish Comics Anthology Vol. 02 on Bleeding Cool!

June 1st, 2018

I’m honored to have a short story in SCI: The Jewish Comics Anthology vol. 02, published by Alternate History Press!

Publisher Andy Stanleigh has a wonderful article about the project on bleedingcool.com: “Ancient Tales, Future Visions: Time To Get Some More Jewish Culture In Comics.”

Here’s an excerpt:

SCI, like our other projects, is a celebration of storytelling. The challenge that I gave to Steven Bergson — a comics historian and expert in the representation of Jews in comics, who is our fearless editor on this volume — was to collect stories of intrigue, action, humour, romance, drama and suspense. He dug deep into Hebrew culture and came up with 18 tales from ancient history that the award-winning AH Comics is adapting into short, comic book/graphic novel interpretations with a sci-fi twist.

Each of the 18 stories in this book will be exciting visions of the future, based on ages-old myths and legends. 18 is a significant number, as it is represented by the Hebrew character “chai”, which means “life”.

SCI: The Jewish Comics Anthology Volume 2 is an exploration of a people, a culture, that has existed for almost 6,000 years. The stories focus on some of the most interesting vignettes from communities of that time, rocketing them into a time left unexplored. Some of the tales as well present anecdotes and themes that might seem familiar to us all, but set in a time and place unlike anything you’ve seen before.
