The Passover Haggadah Graphic Novel is a collaboration between acclaimed Batman comics creator and Jewish cartoonist Jordan B “Gorf” Gorfinkel, Koren Publishers, and Israeli artist Erez Zadok.
Using contemporary, vibrant illustrations,The Passover Haggadah Graphic Novel integrates a brand-new, modern translation into sophisticated and fun sequential art that brings the epic Exodus story to life. The result of extensive historical and linguistic research, every gorgeous panel imbues the classic narrative with renewed relevance and excitement. The graphic novel pages are presented alongside the unabridged, traditional Seder service text, in Hebrew and transliteration, and accompanied by “how to” instructional cartoons depicting all of the rituals, as celebrated every year for the last 4000 years in Jewish homes around the world.
This historic publication will appeal to family members and guests of multiple generations and diverse backgrounds. There’s no more universal medium for telling heroic stories, one that bridges all cultures, faiths and languages, than the sequential art form of the graphic novel—itself a Jewish innovation. An artistic and educational milestone, the Passover Haggadah Graphic Novel will inspire and engage everyone on Passover night for many years to come.
