Eli.Valley.PUCK.APOCALYPSE.2013

First panel from my contribution to APUCKALYPSE, an Italian anthology featuring 100 artists from around the world, each imagining a separate day and hour of the apocalypse. My story takes place ion the Fifth Day, in New York City, at 2 PM; this is just the first panel. The anthology should be released in Europe by the end of 2013 and hopefully in an American edition in 2014. For more on the anthology, check out its Facebook page or this page.

Eli.Valley.Stephen.Hawking.History.Hypocrisy

Originally published in The Forward, May 14, 2013. For background, Hawking’s decision and the ensuing outrage was covered in The New York Times, CNN and The Guardian. After the comic appeared, the columnist and translator Hillel Halkin published a piece insisting that such a work should never have been allowed to appear in a Jewish newspaper. I replied to Mr. Halkin and, more broadly, to other self-styled gatekeepers of critical commentary, here.

Eli.Valley.Yair.Lapid.Centrist.Rises

Originally published in The Daily Beast Open Zion, January 24, 2013, after Yair Lapid surprised many with his strong showing in the Israeli elections. Widely considered a “centrist” on peace despite behavior to the contrary, Lapid’s reputation seemed confounding. For a somewhat obscure topic, this one might be especially esoteric, so here’s a key: cottage cheese refers to this, E1 refers to this. Finally, Events after the election have seemed to bear out the comic’s skepticism.
