This chapter shows how Modan co-founded, with Yirmi Pinkus Actus Tragicus, the comics collective that introduced the world to Israeli comics. It explores how the Oslo Accord and the assassination of Yitzhak Rabin increased interest in Israeli culture and helped increase receptivity to Modan and other Israeli artists. It investigates Modan's early stories and her recurring theme of family secrets.
