A New Look At Asaf Hanuka’s ‘The Realist: Last Day On Earth’
by Brendan M. Allen
BOOM! Studios has revealed a new look at The Realist: Last Day On Earth, a new original graphic novel from cartoonist Asaf Hanuka, translated from Hebrew by Yardenne Greenspan and lettered by AndWorld Design.
The long-awaited third collection of Hanuka’s one-page autobiographical weekly comics returns to captivate, inspire, and challenge readers. Through scenes both real and imagined, the acclaimed Israeli cartoonist examines the joys (and pitfalls) of parenting in a politically divisive world and the ongoing struggle to manifest art even as real life humor and pathos keeps getting in the way. The beautifully drawn stories about self, family, society, and everything in between conjure a deeply rich and unforgettable reading experience.
The Realist: Last Day On Earth will be available for sale on June 22, 2022.
