Eli Valley – Drawing And Dissecting Judaism’s Idiosyncrasies

22 Jun

Eli Valley was recently noted on The Big Jewcy list for his graphic novel interpretations of Jewish culture. Jon Reiss writes, “As Jews, we are to question and challenge ourselves.  To some degree this doctrine is the cornerstone of comic writer Eli Valley’s work.  Valley’s work exists in a world all its own, a far cry from mainstream comic world, but a bit too zany for the political/social commentary comic one.  Valley has carved out his own niche, but his willingness to dissect the idiosyncrasies of his own culture and religion has become his raison d’être.”

Valley recently assumed the role of “artist in residence” at The Forward.
