The Palpable Presence of Absence
This chapter discusses Modan's Jamilti a story of a suicide bombing and a kiss between an Israeli and Palestinian that challenges many taboos of Israeli society. It shows how that story led to Modan's first graphic novel, Exit Wounds. The chapter explores Numi, the complex female protagonist of Exit Wounds, and her relationship with Koby, as they search together for Koby's father in the aftermath of a suicide bombing. It also shows how Modan adapts Hergé's famous clear line style to tell a morally complex and psychologically nuanced story.
