"Luna" (2021) is a graphic novel by Artist and illustrator Anat Martkovich, developed in collaboration with artist and illustrator Haithem Haddad. It was self published, with support by the Pais Foundation for the Arts.
The novel follows two days in the life of a family, and at its center is a dramatic event which drastically affects the lives of the family members.
The story develops in an a-linear and fantastic fashion, and attempts to present the impossible reality of violence within and outside the home.
The book is comprised of detailed black and white illustrations, with very little text accompanying them.
The little text alternated between different languages: Russian, Hebrew, Arabic, English and Hebrew sign language, depicting a complex and multi layer urban existence. The story is open to the reader's interpretation, though it is firmly set in a mundane everyday reality it opens up and presents us with fantastic possibilities of existence.
