Is Superman Circumcised? An interview with the author, Roy Schwartz

We first met Roy Schwartz at Motor City Comicon in October of 2021. The title of his novel certainly grabs your attention, but it's Roy's depth of knowledge about history and comics that keeps you engaged. I knew that the creators of Superman were two Jewish men, Jerry Siegel and Joel Shuster, and that Kal-El's escape from Krypton mirrors the story of Moses in the reed basket floating down the Nile.  I had no idea just how much Jewish history, culture, and values are embedded in the original super hero as well as many more popular comic book characters. 

We hope you enjoy this interview as much as we did. We are certain you will learn something you never knew. If you like what you hear from Roy, go buy his book, Is Superman Circumcised? The Complete Jewish History of the World's Greatest Hero
