What I liked: The drawings are simple but beautiful, with a good sense of color. The story is straightforward and heartfelt.
What I didn’t like: No real dislikes, though I wish the story would have dug a little deeper.
What I learned: A little about life in Israel.

    Exit Wounds was great! I read it when it first came out, and I’m eventually going to try to get Kelly (Lohman) to read it. You know, after she reads all the other comics I want her to read!
