Gidi Gezer by Elisheva Nadal
Gidi Gezer

Elisheva Nadal created several comics for children's magazine Haaretz Shelanu in the 1950's and the early 1960's. Her most significant comic was 'Gidi Gezer', about a teenager that got superpowers by eating carrots. It was written by Yaacov Ashman who let the character battle the British and the Arabs during the Israeli War of Independence in 1948 and the Eqyptian army during the 1956 war.

For 15 years, the site was funded from the resources of our Amsterdam-based shop. However, the current economical circumstances make it difficult for us to maintain this service. At the moment the Comiclopedia's sole editor works for us free of charge, aided by a couple of (international) volunteers.
