This new volume of short pieces from Rutu Modan is an interesting counterpart to Exit Wounds, her full-length English-language debut. These shorter stories are charming, surreal, and sometimes a bit grotesque. By-and-large, they are not as fully immersed in the Israeli experience as the more focused Exit Wounds, which brings Modan's work into a space that most English readers have not experienced before. But there's a lot to enjoy in Jamilti, and it's fascinating to see Modan exercise her talents in new ways - the drawings are as strong as ever, and the whimsical approach to shape, color, and texture is a joy. The broad swath of subject matter is rewarding, even if the character development is a bit wooden at times. All in all, Jamilti is fine evidence of a strong comics talent making itself known on these shores - I expect many wonderful things from Rutu Modan in the future.
