You Must Show Reverence
Rutu Modan's NYT Strips

One of the best books we've seen come through the Isotope front door recently is without a doubt Rutu Modan's Exit Wounds, a jaw-dropping original graphic novel from one of Israeli's most popular cartoonists. The utterly visceral story of life in one of the most volatile cities on the planet and one young soul's search for his missing father who is rumored to have been killed in a suicide bomb attack had me utterly transfixed from the moment I opened the first page.

If you haven't already had the pleasure of reading Exit Wounds, do give the great reviews a read, and drop me a line to ensure I put a copy of this amazing book aside for you.

For the rest of us who are already followers of her wonderful work and have been hungering for more of Modan's brilliance, we're in luck! Recently translated and running on line in the New York Times is a series of illustrated short stories you won't want to miss.

The Most Popular Girl in Warsaw and Other Stories

And while we're on the Rutu subject... I also suggest watching her interview about Exit Wounds with the BBC here.
