The Placebo Man

    (Alternative, 2006)
™ and ©2005 Tomer Hanuka

Tomer Hanuka is so in-demand as an illustrator that when DC Comics snagged him for some covers in their Focus line, they made a point of mentioning it. What you don’t hear as often is the sheer power of his writing. The Placebo Man is a collection of tales written and drawn by Hanuka that will move you to gasp. When he writes about love, as in “Aquaflesh” or “I Love You” the reader’s heart hammers in his chest. And stories like “Elephant Graveyard” feel like watching someone fall from a cliff in slow motion film. The inevitability of what’s about to happen is made all the worse by how long we have to consider it. A wonderful book.
