Tomer and Asaf Hanuka are twins. They share a similar genetic structure but were raised in different places. This condition creates a special tension between their stories and styles and is the foundation of Bipolar.
Asaf, with writer Etgar Keret is telling the story of “Pizzeria Kamikaze.” about a guy with a broken heart who committed suicide only to find himself at Pizza Kamikaze, a regular day job in a world where everyone died before and now it’s about passing time. Tomer is telling personal stories with a twisted time sense that will put you right now, a year ago, and in the future.
This issue in two stories: The first: After finding his lost love, Mordy discovers that you can’t trust anything in the land of suicides. Death, finger food, bureaucratic blunders, and one undercover angel roil the climatic last chapter of Asaf Hanuka and Etgar Keret’s “Pizzeria Kamikaze”. The second: “Aquaflesh” by Tomer Hanuka — Drowning in alcohol and self pity, the washed-up Aquaflesh gets his last chance to confront the moment that changed it all.
“Each edition has conducted readers on an excursion through curious environments, full of sights that conjoin the common and the disorienting and of situations that are at once both ordinary and unaccountable.” — The Comics Journal
