SCI: The Jewish Comics Anthology Volume 2 tells ancient legends in a way never before seen!

From the multiple award-winning publisher of MOONSHOT The Indigenous Comics Collection comes the next incredible collection - Volume 2 of the Jewish Comics Anthology called SCI!

SCI: The Jewish Comics Anthology Volume 2 book!

A Long Time Ago...

In 2014, AH Comics published Volume 1 of the Jewish Comics Anthology. That was a massive 256 page collection of short comic book stories, based on ancient folk tales and myths from Hebrew culture.

Edited by Steven Bergson and told by legends of the comic book world - Art Spiegelman, Will Eisner, Joe Kubert, and even Stan Lee - who wove stories from almost 6,000 years of cultural history into one epic volume.

...And Now

And now we bring you Volume 2 of this groundbreaking collection! We're digging deeper into the past for ancient stories, and rocketing them into the future to create a stunning, original comic book anthology for people of all ages, from all corners of the Earth - and beyond!

Inside SCI: The Jewish Comics Anthology Volume 2 you will find 18 original comic book and graphic novel stories full of action, drama, humour, horror and romance. Again edited by Steven Bergson, each story is based on ages-old tales from Hebrew culture - retold as epic sci-fi visions of the future!

Sample page from "The Climb", just one of the 18 stories created exclusively for Volume 2 of the Jewish Comics Anthology!
