(p.3) Introduction
The Comics of Rutu Modan

Kevin Haworth

University Press of Mississippi

This chapter introduces the reader to Rutu Modan and her home city of Tel Aviv. It provides a quick overview of Modan's work and to Israeli comics, and argues that Israeli comics provide essential insight into contemporary Israeli culture and society. It shows how most comics about the Middle East are written from an American or European perspective, and argues for more scholarly attention to comics that originate from Middle Eastern countries themselves. It also shows that most of the focus on Jewish comics focuses on American creators, rather than Israelis.

Keywords:   Middle East, Comics, Tel Aviv, Modan, Jewish
