Maariv ran an interview with talented Israeli comics artists Assaf and Tomer Hanuka (Hebrew, Registration required) last Friday (25th October, 2002), focusing on their comic (Biopolar) being mentioned the The Face. The article ends with a list of recommended alternative comics (none of which are really available in Israel) and has a link to Tomer Hanuka‘s site, which features a portfolio of his illustrations and details about the 3 issues of Bipolar published to date.
Whatever happened to Tal Liron?
Also of interest (for my Victorian game) are the 2nd part of the Flashman Chronology (a terrific site. Must read those books sometime), covering the later half of the Victorian era, and this more domestic-oriented Victoriana site
