LOS ANGELES, CA (March 24, 2022) – BOOM! Studios today revealed a new look at THE REALIST: LAST DAY ON EARTH, a new original graphic novel from Eisner Award-winning series of New York Times bestselling cartoonist Asaf Hanuka (The Realist), translated from Hebrew by Yardenne Greenspan and lettered by AndWorld Design, that presents the long-awaited third collection of the New York Times bestseller and Eisner Award-winning cartoonist’s autobiographical weekly strips! Available in June 2022.
The long-awaited third collection of the Eisner Award-winning series of New York Times bestselling cartoonist Asaf 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 internationally acclaimed and Hugo Award-nominated cartoonist’s beautifully drawn stories about self, family, society, and everything in between conjure a deeply rich and unforgettable reading experience.
