He explained it’s about the gradual infusion of comics, especially superheroes, into our everyday life and culture. Next, we talked briefly about his career, and what some of his favorite works are. Then, we talked about another book of his: Disguised as Clark Kent: Jews, Comics, and the Creation of the Superhero.

He told us that he saw not as much Judaism the religion but the Jewish culture and sensibility as influential in comics. Lastly, we talked about his upcoming biography of Marvel Comics titan Stan Lee. Stan Lee is perhaps the best-known creator in the comic book industry. Fingeroth told us that he thought his book felt different from others. This includes his previous book about Stan Lee, primarily because he too had been part of the comics industry, and he “knew how the sausage was made,” and this was more a traditional biography than a look through the archives or interviews.
