From the birth of Krypton in Cleveland to the Caped Crusader, Captain America, the Incredible Hulk, Spider-Man, the X-Men, and more, Up, Up, and Oy Vey chronicles the uncanny story behind the story about the origins of the planet's most famous superheroes. While the Jewish contribution to film, theater, music, and comedy has been well-documented, the Jewish role in the creation of the All-American superhero has not been--until now! The official publication date of this book is June 27, 2006, which is two weeks after the 3rd X-Men movie is released and three days before Superman Returns hits the theaters. Additionally, Geppi's Entertainment Museum will be opening in Baltimore on July 4th as well, and this museum is being touted as a one-of-a-kind, fun, interactive museum. . .with a focus on pop culture in all media, toys, and comic characters.

Review: Up, Up, and Oy Vey! How Jewish History, Culture, and Values Shaped the Comic Book Superhero

Recensione dell'utente  - Jeff Adelman - Goodreads

Awesome book. Short, fun read about the history of comic book superheroes and how they relate to Jewish folk legends and Jewish principles. Interesting background about the creators of these American Pop Culture icons: Stan Lee, Bob Kane, and Jack Kirby to name a few. Very enjoyable. Leggi recensione completa
