EXIT WOUNDS in The Sacramento Bee

“The To-Do List; Have some spare minutes and an itch for something new? Add these items to your to-do list.” / The Sacramento Bee / Rachel Leibrock / June 26, 2007

Painful lessons: Tel Aviv-based graphic novelist Rutu Modan explores the concepts of family and identity in "Exit Wounds" (Drawn & Quarterly, $19.95, 172 pages), which chronicles the story of Koby Franco's search for his father after learning he may have been the victim of a suicide bombing. As he tries to piece together his father's last months, Franco also discovers bits of his own history -- and possible future. Modan's art, like her writing, is technically sparse but emotionally rich.
