Summary/Abstract: This paper is an attempt to analyze the threads associated with anti-Semitism in Will Eisner comics books and his struggle against stereotypical treatment of the Jews. The work is divided into two parts. In the first part graphics novels based on the biography of the artist (To the Heart of the Storm and The Name of the Game) are described. The second part is devoted to comics in which he refers to Charles Dickens Oliver Twist (Fagin the Jew) and Protocols of the Elders of Zion (The Plot). -
