Exclusive Comics Excerpt: ‘Exit Wounds’

Every week, the Comics Page introduces you to brand-new graphic novels by the world’s best artists and writers. Manga, superheroes, indie comix — we’ll cover them all as our editors select the best the exploding comics world has to offer.

Koby Franco, an Israeli cabdriver, picks up a soldier with a secret. Her revelation opens up a mystery involving a suicide bombing and the father he’s tried to forget for years.

All week on the Comics Page, we’re excerpting Rutu Modan’s Exit Wounds, a gritty, stunning graphic novel set in modern-day Tel Aviv, where terror and love brush against each other every day. Exit Wounds will be published June 12 by Drawn & Quarterly.
