Rutu Modan comic
Eddie, accompanied by his big goofy dog, goes fishing in his goldfish bowl, saws the legs off a too-high table, and takes a bath with his clothes on! The bright colors, lively drawings, and sing-songy rhymes will delight young readers as they follow along Eddie’s lighthearted mischief. Originally created by Israeli artist Aryeh Navon and Lea Golberg in the 1930s, Rutu Modan offers her own playful take on this classic character for a new, international generation of young readers.

The Property is a work that will inspire, fascinate, and delight readers and critics alike. Savvy and insightful, elegant and subtle, Rutu Modan's second full-length graphic novel is a triumph of storytelling and fine lines. After the death of her son, Regina Segal takes her granddaughter Mica to Warsaw, hoping to reclaim a family property lost during the Second World War. As they get to know modern Warsaw, Regina is forced to recall difficult things about her past, and Mica begins to wonder if maybe their reasons for coming aren't a little different than what her grandmother led her to believe. Modan offers up a world populated by prickly seniors, smart-alecky public servants, and stubborn women-a world whose realism is expressed alternately in the absurdity of people's behavior and in the complex consequences of their sacrifices. Modan's ever-present wit is articulated perfectly in her clear-line style, while a subtle, almost muted color palette complements the true-to-life nuances of her characterization. Exit Wounds made a huge splash for this signature combination of wit, style, and realism, and The Property will cement Modan's status as one of the foremost cartoonists working today.
