(p.91) 4 After Exit Wounds
The Comics of Rutu Modan

Kevin Haworth

University Press of Mississippi

This chapter shows how, after Exit Wounds, Modan broadened her work to include comics journalism about an Israel-Gaza conflict, an autobiographical series for the New York Times, and her first solo children's book, which proved to be very popular in Israel. The chapter identifies how Modan's themes are reconfigured in these works, and how she continues to innovate the comics form in these projects. It also shows how her children's book subtly incorporates elements of Jewish and Israeli culture into a fantastic tale in which a little girl teaches the Queen of England how to enjoy a gluttonous meal.
