Pizzeria Kamikaze

 PIZK   (Alternative, 2006)

™ and © 2000-2005 Etgar Keret and Asaf Hanuka

This volume collects and reprints the Pizzeria Kamikaze serial that ran in the short-lived Bipolar title from Alternative Comics in 2003. Leisurely paced and set in a mundane afterlife populated solely by suicide casualties, Pizzeria Kamikaze follows the progress of Mordy and Uzi who set out to find Mordy’s former girlfriend Desiree whom he learns “offed” herself shortly after Mordy’s own suicide.

Fundamentally, a road trip narrative with a surrealist edge and moderately-sized aspirations, Pizzeria Kamikaze offers several interesting characters and twists along the way before the story comes to a climax at a ragin’ pool party in the woods.

Israeli artist Asaf Hanuka illustrates the tale in black and white and silver, and writer Etgar Keret has several volumes of short stories under his belt.
