A very well crafted graphic novel, about a woman and her granddaughter travelling from Israel to Poland to investigate the woman's claim to a property there. The story, naturally, delves into the past of the woman, revealing secrets and surprises. It's touching, funny and feels very believable - it's kinda got the feel of a quality indie film. The characterisations were particularly well done, I thought - well rounded and believable.

While I really like Modan's art generally, I sometimes find her colours a little muddy, and in the night scenes a bit over-saturated. Maybe it's just me.

It's not a life-changing book, and on a grumpier day my 4.5* would get rounded down, not up. But the story is of a quality that is not as common in comics as it should be, and has has a general excellence of execution, that it deserves the benefit of the doubt.

Loved this! There is a strong Tintin-vibe to this — the ligne clair, historical treasure hunt and broad cast of characters — but it's more complex & politically aware than Hergé. Centers around a search for the Ark Of The Covenant in Palestine, with multi-generational family drama, soldiers, crooks, swindlers, terrorists, rabbis, and plot twists and reversals galore. Go read! I wanted to reread straight away. An interesting afterword from Modan also shouldn't be missed.

Israeli drama. It involves love, mystery, and a tinge of dark humor (much like "Exit Wounds"). This is a lot more ambitious than Rutu Modan's previous work, but, much like "Exit Wounds," I feel like I'm too stupid for this. There's some thematic message about love, death, and money that I just CAN'T connect. God, I wish I could. Definitely a good book to read again!
