Through exuberant wit, wisdom and genuinely cinematic verve, Modan’s Middle-Eastern intrigue grabs us from the very first panel and never lets go. A colorful cast of passionate, exasperating and eccentric characters, all flawed yet somehow loveable, enliven Tunnels’ riotous plot. With constantly surprising twists and turns, Modan packs a great deal into this slyly subversive, highly entertaining story—a rancorous family, the mis/uses of archaeology and the mythical past, messianic zealots, human greed, and the tempest of current Israeli-Palestinian relations—and yet it all brilliantly succeeds, with dollops of rich human comedy leavening her very serious themes. The most deliriously inventive and daring graphic novel in recent memory, Tunnels triumphs as the perfect adventure story for thinking adults.
