From often crude caricatures to witty self-portraits, the representations, and the presence, of Jews in British comics have changed in parallel to society’s shifting perceptions of the Jewish community and to British Jews’ increasing desire for assimilation and ‘invisibility’. This chronological exploration considers distinctive examples of Jewish characters and themes, starting during Dickensian times and continuing through mass-market children’s weeklies to the late 20th century’s emergence of adult underground comics and autobiographical graphic novels.
