week 70 :: Sgt Shalit is Coming Home


Sgt Gilad Shalit has been in Hamas captivity for more than 5 years. During that time, my son was born, we moved to a new apartment and I started documenting my life in comics form. I did a piece about Shalit in the past (and one about Astronauts).
But today everything changes.A deal was signed with Hamas. More than thousand Palestinians prisoners will be released from Israeli jail in return for Shalit. After a short period of national joy once the announcement was made, the debate in Israel questioned that exchange. Is it worth it?
