Comments: Created by Tami Pinson. The characters first appeared in Mendy's Fun Page, which ran weekly in a number of Jewish newspapers in North American and Australia. There was a comic of Mendy and the Golem in the early 1980's, and more recently the title has been revived in an all new telling of the story.
