    This graphic novel adaptation of Chandler’s never-produced film script tells the tale of a woman running for her life and a murder in Vancouver. 
     
    Blond and beautiful Betty Mayfield has just been found guilty of murdering her husband. But when the judge realizes the jury is terrified of Betty’s father-in-law—the man who owns everything in this small North Carolina town—he overturns the verdict. Her father-in-law swears vengeance, and Betty flees. Seeking a new life, she meets Larry Mitchell, a brash but charming gigolo, on the train to Vancouver. He brings her to the Royal Vancouver Hotel, where she checks into a room beneath the penthouse of wealthy playboy Clark Brandon, who takes her under his wing. When Mitchell’s body turns up on Betty's balcony, jaded inspector Jeff Killaine is assigned to the case, but finds himself falling for Betty. Did she do it, or was she framed?  
     
    This graphic novel presents a heart-pounding tale of betrayal, blackmail, and murder that will take you to the edge of your seat on a ride through Raymond Chandler’s last thriller. 
     
    “The tart, brusque, spoiled-romantic patter is breathtaking, and Ayroles’ brutal artwork, akin to the blunt, high-contrast noir comics styles of fellow Frenchman Jacques de Loustal . . . becomes more fitting with every frame.” —Booklist 
     
    “Benoit and Ayroles keep the tone ice-cool and the drawings stark and blunt. . . . Sleek and clearly a labor of love.” —Entertainment Weekly 
     
    “The pulp-noir master’s lost work has finally come to life the way Chandler might have imagined it.” —Esquire

    Zeddy Lawrence once said, "It may not be true in all cases, but it's a pretty good rule of thumb. If the word 'man' appears at the end of someone's name you can draw one of two conclusions: a) they're Jewish, as in Goldman, Feldman, or Lipman; or b) they're a superhero, as in Superman, Batman, or Spider-Man."In Superman Is Jewish? Harry Brod reveals the links between Jews and superheroes in a penetrating investigation of iconic comic book figures. He describes how the role of each hero reflects the evolution of the Jewish place in American culture-an alien in a foreign land, like Superman; a figure plagued by guilt for not having saved his family, like Spider-Man; outsiders persecuted for being different (X-Men); a nice, smart guy afraid people won't like him when he's angry (the Hulk). Brod blends humor and sharp observation as he considers these well-known figures' overtly and discreetly Jewish characteristics and talks about how their creators-including Jerry Siegel, Joe Shuster, Stan Lee, and Jack Kirby-integrated their Jewish identities and their creativity. His lively guided tour takes us from the Passover Haggadah's exciting action scenes of Moses's superpowers to acclaimed Pulitzer Prize winners and overseas animators.Brod has written and lectured extensively on this fun and provocative topic and through his expertise explores the deeper story of how one immigrant group can influence the larger culture through entertainment and, in the process, see itself in new, more empowering ways. Not just for comic book fans, Superman Is Jewish? is a story of America, and is as poignant as it is fascinating.
