Wonderful comic! It's cool to see a webcomic in Hebrew!! (Even though I can barely translate any of it...) The flash is a wonderful idea; the downside is that I can't save a particularly clever comic as a .jpg for later viewing (or emailing friends)...
The distinct drawing style is interesting, and I think I so far sort of prefer it without expressions. <P>Suggestions:<P>1) Some storylines would be interesting...
2) Some commentary on Israel (not just the Palestinian situation, but everything) would make the comic stand out. Virtually every webcomic takes place in the US or some fantasy land - locating this one firmly and realistically in the Middle East would make it more distinct and interesting. (Not that I want it to turn into a political cartoon, or anything...)<P>Kol HaKavod!

Hmm... oddly enough, the more we get into the strip, the more it seems to me that the local industry does pretty much tend to keep up with the rest of the world (Pazi would argue, I bet). Although that whole Dreamcast issue is still totally surreal...<P>Does anyone else think the English version looks kind of ODD when it gets flipped over? I draw the images right-to-left, so when you turn them over, you can SEE that some of them are flipped. Maybe it's just me.<P>JB.

Here's the link for ya - <A HREF="http://section972.keenspace.com/d/20001227.html" TARGET=_blank>http://section972.keenspace.com/d/20001227.html</A> (It almost killed me and my IE6 finding it...)<P>Do you read the Hebrew version of the strips, or the English one? the text is not the same in this strip (which is extra-funny in it's own special, meta, way).
