**Part of the Four-Part Lecture/Workshop Series “Shazam! Jewish Biblical Texts Transformed by the Power of Pictures”**
Featuring Ben Schachter, Artist in Residence, Jewish Studies Program, University of Pittsburgh
The third presentation focuses on Jewish texts that are not commonly represented in comics and graphic novels. These include representations of Talmudic debates. Schachter will present how he wrote and produced Akhnai Pizza (2020), a comic book that sets a debate between rabbinic figures in modern day Pittsburgh. This work stays true to the narrative outline of the original story and highlights the emotional effects of interpersonal animosity.
