BOOM! Studios Announces New Full-Color Edition of ‘Pizzeria Kamikaze’ from Etgar Keret and Asaf Hanuka

BOOM! Studios has announced the addition of Pizzeria Kamikaze, the haunting, sometimes surreal graphic novel by award-winning writer Etgar Keret and Eisner Award-winning cartoonist Asaf Hanuka, to its Archaia imprint. The new edition will debut in February 2018 and will be presented in full color and in prestigious hardcover for the first time. This unexpectedly powerful story of love, loss, and escape was first published in black and white by Alternative Comics in 2006 and is based on Keret’s own short story, Kneller’s Happy Campers, which also served as the basis for the independent film, Goran Dukić’s Wristcutters: A Love Story.

In Pizzeria Kamikaze, after committing suicide, narrator Mordy is condemned to an afterlife where he still has to attend a crappy job in a place no less crappy than the place he came from. When he discovers that his beloved ex-girlfriend is there, too, he embarks on a much-needed road trip through an absurdist and fantastical landscape to find her.

Pizzeria Kamikaze features a new cover by Hanuka, who also has had two volumes of The Realist—curated collections of his semi-autobiographical comic strips—published by BOOM! Studios. The first volume won an Eisner Award in 2016.

Print copies of Pizzeria Kamikaze will be available for sale in February 2018.
