  • ‘Adult Swim’ explains the story of Sodom and Gomorrah

    By Brad A. Greenberg

    January 9, 2009 | 4:35 pm

    Imagine an eccentric college professor telling the story of Sodom and Gomorrah and have a little liberty with the exact details. You might come up with something funny like the above clip from “Adult Swim,” a show I’d never watched and now find to be a surprising member of the Cartoon Network roster.

  • Editorial cartoonist talks about getting canned

    By Brad A. Greenberg

    November 17, 2008 | 4:53 pm

    I interned at the Ventura County Star during my last quarter of college and for a few months after I graduated. My earliest mentors worked at the Star and a few of my friends remain. So when I heard two weeks ago that the once safe paper was laying off 17 newsroom employees, I...

  • Comic book strip draws on old New York

    By Amy Klein Religion Editor

    June 9, 2008 | 2:33 pm

    Ben Katchor speaks slowly, hal-ting-ly, pausing frequently, as if he's thinking of images to go with his words as he speaks.

    He probably is, as the comic book artist (not graphic novelist) has been pairing images with words for most of his life. While the characters of his fanciful...

    By Tom Tugend

    April 17, 2008 | 6:00 pm

    There's a 1,000-year-old haggadah, there's an Internet haggadah, and now there is a new $15,000 Arthur Szyk Haggadah.

    Szyk (pronounced Shick) was a Jew, a Pole, an American, and always an artist, whose brilliant paintings and cartoons could give new life to ancient traditions or...

    Muslim Majority

    Salam Al-Marayati's apologetics miss the mark entirely ("Don't Ignore the Quiet Majority of Muslims," Feb. 17). In the wake of the mass violence throughout Africa, the Middle East and Asia, it is impossible to argue that a small, extremist element, "a handful of...

  • A Bitter Pill for Europe to Swallow

    By Dinah Spritzer

    February 16, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    A Danish employee of the European Union in Brussels confides that she is so fearful of Muslim anger over the now-infamous cartoons of the prophet Mohammed in a Danish newspaper that she is afraid to go home.

    Unnerved Danish members of the European Parliament refuse to comment on...

  • Europe’s Jews Caught in Cartoon Furor

    By JTA Staff

    February 16, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    European Jews have expressed a mixture of anger and frustration as the furor over a Muslim cartoon erupted into violence in Europe and the Middle East.

    As frequent targets of anti-Semitic cartoons -- many of them in the Arab press -- Jews on one hand sympathized with the Muslim...

    Cartoons

    Thank you for your thoughtful comments on the cartoon episode ("Drawn to Controversy," Feb. 10). My one area of disagreement is with the quote from Rabbi [Abraham] Cooper: "We live in a world based on freedom of expression."

    No we don't. We live in a culture with those...

  • Cartoon Riots Spark Sweet Backlash

    By David Finnigan

    February 16, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    In the wake of a Danish newspaper's decision to publish cartoons depicting the prophet Muhammad, Danish flags and embassies are beset by violent protesters in heavily Muslim countries. But a chocolate store in the windmill-filled, Danish American tourist village of Solvang has...

  • Don’t Ignore the Quiet Majority of Muslims

    By Salam Al-Marayati

    February 16, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    Most Muslims -- and especially American Muslims -- cannot fairly be accused of hypersensitivity when it comes to the Danish cartoons depicting the prophet Muhammad. That's because most Muslims have not overreacted, despite the stereotypic images served up by the media. In fact, most...

  • Drawn to Controversy

    By Rob Eshman

    February 9, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    Early this week I started getting the letters. By midweek there were dozens of them, all strident, some using BIG CAPS to make their point.

    "Do you have the GUTS to reprint those cartoons?" many of them started off.

    Some substituted another part of the male anatomy for guts...

  • Sophisticated Kid’s ‘Lit’

    By Michael Aushenker

    November 2, 2000 | 7:00 pm

    In the late 1970s and early 1980s, Art Spiegelman and Françoise Mouly created, edited and contributed to several editions of RAW, an anthology of post-modern comics (or "co-mix," as Spiegelman insisted) that did much to reshape alternative comics. By culling work from a clique of...
