After reading “Are Comics The Jewish Art Form?” (Oct. 7), I felt compelled to respond.

As an educator, I was struck by the possibility of using the article as a lesson plan for age-appropriate Jewish and regular classes. The history of comics, cartoons, immigration, politics and World War II could be subsections of the course. Students could be asked to create their own statements, in comic or cartoon form.

Thanks to the writer, Paul Buhle, for diverting our thoughts from the grim and grimy to a topic that informs with a smile.
