Jordan B. Gorfinkel at work
As a DC Comics editor for nearly a decade, Jordan B. Gorfinkel was front and center in a 400% growth of the Batman franchise, including an explosion of licensed products and the successful development of Warner Bros.' Batman animated television series and film franchise. He masterminded "No Man's Land," which was serialized weekly in every mainstream Batman periodical for one entire calendar year; "No Man's Land" was the inspiration for the acclaimed film "Batman Begins." He also created BIRDS OF PREY, the longest running superhero comic starring women since Wonder Woman; BIRDS OF PREY was developed into the 2002 WB TV network series.
As a cartoonist, Gorfinkel writes and illustrates Everything's Relative, the weekly newspaper comic-strip published internationally, from America to Israel to Germany, that DreamWorksSKG called "a wonderful idea." In 2007, the newMunich Jewish Museum commissioned a series of "Everything's Relative" cartoons to be featured in their permanent exhibition. Gorfinkel is the first cartoonist in the world to be so honored in a Jewish museum.
In film, Gorfinkel served as a founding "superfellow" of Jewish Impact Films, working alongside Hollywood producers, directors and writers from "The Simpsons," "Desperate Housewives" and "Shrek 2" to guide over two dozen film students from America and abroad to write, shoot and postproduce 50 short films.
In music, Gorfinkel is a producer and performer of eight independent music CD releases including "Voices For Israel," the acclaimed Jewish "We Are the World" charity benefit. He has performed all over the globe, including at the White House Chanukah celebration -- an event immortalized as the "Moment Of Zen" on Comedy Central's "The Daily Show Starring Jon Stewart."
Gorfinkel has developed a library of over 50 original entertainment IPs with his studio, Avalanche Comics Entertainment, with more being created every day.
