The Comic Book Siddur: It's a functional prayerbook and graphic novel rolled into one. The Shabbat morning service re-imagined as a superhero quest story. Contains all the prayers (for a Reform Service) in easy-to-read 24 point Hebrew font. Snappy "comic speak" english translations (in word balloons) spoken by a minyan of muscular super heroes as they fight their way to the bima to do an aliya. Educational, informative, and action-packed!
The Jewish Siddur naturally lends itself to a being a superhero narrative.
The story starts out with us waking up to a new day, making our way to Temple, getting closer to God, and honoring God, our ancestors, and the torah. These are examples of quest stories embedded in the Jewish prayerbook. This is great stuff! So why not envision our prayerbook as a superhero story, so that you will better learn and understand it? That is what the Comic Book Siddur is all about: reinvigorating the experience of prayer, and our enjoyment of it, with the thrilling storytelling techniques of comic books.
