Fall Lecture

Rutu Modan
Wednesday evening, 7pm
October 17, 2007
Room 15o, sf campus
Reception following

From Drawn & Quarterly:
Rutu Modan may be already known to some North American comics readers for her short stories with the Israeli comics collective Actus Tragicus --and D+Q published her before in Drawn & Quarterly volume 5. After that story was published in 2003, I asked her if she would consider writing and drawing her first full length graphic novel. The result is Exit Wounds , a remarkable book recounting an eager female soldier and reluctant cab driver's search for information on the cabbie's estranged father who they believe may have been killed in a suicide bombing. It'll likely be among the best graphic novels published this year considering the advance praise it's already received. Both Joe Sacco and Etgar Keret call Rutu one of the best cartoonists working today, and Booklist and the Jewish Daily Forward both weigh in with strong reviews. It should be noted that this is also the first book by a new author that we've sold U.K. rights to (it will be published in England by Jonathan Cape), and there will likely be French, German, and Spanish editions coming soon.
