Lots of love for Rutu Modan

Heeb magazine has plenty of love to give Rutu Modan, author of Exit Wounds. Not only was Exit Wounds included in their top ten graphic novel list, but she made their Heeb 100, "a roundup of 100 people you need to know about." Check out what they had to say:

COMIC ARTIST, EXIT WOUNDS


Comic artist Rutu Modan doesn't mean to humanize the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, it just comes naturally. Earlier this year, the acclaimed Israeli comic artist and the former editor of the country's version of Mad Magazine published her North American graphic novel debut, Exit Wounds, to rave reviews. In panel after panel of elegantly simple drawings, she sends her characters wandering through Tel Aviv in search of a suicide bombing victim. Their emotional struggles are the story's central drama, but as the novel progresses, Modan manages to subtly illuminate the existential confusion that hangs heavy over life in a war zone.
