Though I'd never heard of Asaf Hanuka and Etgar Keretor, nor their comic Streets Of Rage prior to a couple of hours ago, I certainly have more than an inkling to look them up now thanks to the short film adaptation of the story by Daniel Lazo and Eran May-raz. The story is very much from the slice of life / autobiographical, coming of age school of indie graphic novels, and it's a solid bit of work. Watch the entire five minute short below, and if you've got any recommendations on where a neophyte should start with Hanuka and Keretor's work, please let us know!

    Check out Pizzeria Kamikaze, another collaboration with Hanuka based on the same short story which birthed Wristcutters. It's collected as a standalone, but I recommend you get Bipolar, which contains its serialized version alongside short fiction by Asaf's equally talented twin, Tomer.
