Archaia To Collect Asaf Hanuka's The Realist
Archaia, an imprint from BOOM! Studios, will be publishing Israeli illustrator Asaf Hanuka's autobiographical graphic novel The Realist. This will be the first time Hanuka's award-winning weekly strips will be collected in English. It tells the emotional and very personal story of life and raising a family in Tel Aviv, Israel.
"Asaf Hanuka can say more with a single illustration than some people could say in a whole book," said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. "The Realist is a rollercoaster of emotion, filled with humorous strips of trying to raise a family and stunning, quiet images of the dangers of a war-torn country. Marjane Satrapi introduced Western audiences to a post-Islamic Revolution Iran in Persepolis, and now Asaf Hanuka gives us a window into modern life in Tel Aviv with The Realist."
Featuring a trim size of 6.875 x 10.1875 and containing 192 pages, The Realist original hardcover graphic novel arrives in comic shops from Archaia on April 22nd with a cover by creator Asaf Hanuka for the price of $24.99.
