The Realist Right to Left

With this strip from Asaf Hanuka’s fabulous The Realist, I realised that it’s not just Japanese comics that present orientation issues when you translate them.  The original version of Hanuka’s strips are in hebrew, which is read right-to-left.  If you then mirror the image for English left-to-right reading, the dad character suddenly becomes right-handed, but it’s almost like Angry Birds got mirrored too !

But don’t let that spoil the comic, which is one of the most profound and true serials that you can find online at the moment.  There’s already fifty strips, so you’d better catch up !
