Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at Each week, we’ll select the best letters and publish them in a new letters to the editor feature on the Scroll.

We hope this new largely symbolic measure will help us create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all of our readers, and, as always, we thank you deeply for your support.

Fascinating story, and it works shockingly well in comix form. Vanessa is SO SO SO GOOD at what she does.

Sloane Citron says:

Great job! I didn’t think this could work but obviously Venessa is very talented. Thanks!

Allan Baumgarten says:

Nicely done – but quibble over term “impure” – a sefer Torah cannot become ritually impure – see this explanation from Rabbi Shlomo Riskin:

As numerous individuals pointed out, romance was never one of Bakuman’s solid points. Thankfully the romance is maintained to a minimal and Moshiro and Azuki’s relationship is a source of motivation for them to follow, although I believe it is as well a source of interference.

Your blog was tweeted by a friend the other day. Figured I’d check it out. Best decision ever.

Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the net the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people think about worries that they plainly do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

Excellent read, I just passed this onto a colleague who was doing some research on that. And he actually bought me lunch since I found it for him smile Therefore let me rephrase that: Thank you for lunch!
