Secret Identities Examined in <i>Superman Isn&#8217;t Jewish (But I Am&#133;Kinda)</i>

Identity is a complex, often confusing reckoning, especially for a young person—or even for most capes-and-tights crusaders. In Jimmy Bemon and Emilie Boudet’s Superman Isn’t Jewish (But I Am…Kinda), protagonist Benjamin proudly proclaims, “I’m Jewish. Like Superman!” To Benjamin’s young mind, Judaism is like a super power and Hebrew is akin to the Kryptonian language. As he learns more about his religion and its traditions, Benjamin finds himself torn between his fear of disappointing his Jewish father and his desire to understand his Catholic mother.

Partly autobiographical, Superman Isn’t Jewish (But I Am…Kinda) is the newest release from Humanoids’ Life Drawn imprint, and serves as a humorous, poignant journey of acceptance and learning to love the hero within ourselves. Check out an exclusive preview of Boudet’s interior art below, and be sure to pick up the graphic novel from bookstores and digital retailers this week.
