Alex Wolinetz (Ravel) is a playwright, a comic book author, and a Jew!

In this episode, Alex joins Eric to discuss a rare two page comic by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster (Superman’s creators) that appeared exclusively in LOOK Magazine, and features The Man Of Tomorrow taking on both Hitler and Stalin.

Other topics include: Jerry and Joe’s Judaism affecting their worldview, the entire Comic Book medium as an extension of Jewish culture, and the boys’ punk rock attempt to reappropriate the terms “Übermensch” (used by Hitler) and “Man Of Steel” (used by Stalin), and apply them towards an American immigrant superhero.

Shalom!
