Jewish Comic Creator Bios:
Joshua H. Stulman is the creator and artist for Israeli Defense Comics, a Pro Israel comic book featuring the Jewish Superhero, Magen: The Shield of Israel.

These stories fuse action and adventure with references to news stories straight from the headlines.
Al Wiesner, is the creator of Shaloman, the first independently published Jewish Superhero in America since 1983. The 34 year veteran comic book artist’s work fuses action, Yiddish humor, and Jewish education to create a unique hero. Shaloman’s popularity has carried through in nearly 40 issues and five volumes. In 2010, Al Wiesner was honored with the Inkpot Award at the San Diego Comic Con for his achievements in the graphic arts.
