Ben Katchor
Guy Lochhead, 21/05/10
Jewish American cartoonist of the Julius Knipl series and ‘The Jew of New York’. He has also written several musical farces and a ‘comic book opera’. His work is defined by its romantic portrayal of Jewish New York, and a concentration on the small but necessary, overlooked elements of the city. Katchor’s approach is too religious and space-specific to be included, I think. His comics are brilliant though.
