While the Jewish contribution to film, theatre, music and comedy has been well-documented, the Jewish role in the creation of the All-American superhero has been left unexplored - until now. The early comic book creators were almost all Jewish, and as children of immigrants, they spent their lives trying to escape the second-class mentality which was forced on them by the outside world. Their fight for truth, justice and the American Way is portrayed by the superheroes they created. Up, Up and Oy Vey! observes comic book heroes through historical and cultural lenses.
