Collection of three tales from the Actus Tragicus collective. "Sisters D'Espard" tells of an opera Diva addicted to seances who comes to Tel Aviv to perform the role of a lifetime; "Bygone" is the story of three tragically orphaned sisters who run a theme hotel in a small town; and "Losers of Dollyland" is a new Holy Trinity of Dolls, Games, and Rock & Reggae lyrics.
Actus Tragicus, sometimes credited as Actus Comics or simply Actus, comprises a group of five Israeli comic artists which was founded in 1995 by Rutu Modan and Yirmi Pinkus. Actus Tragicus was founded to allow its members to reach an audience outside of Israel by publishing a book each year. The books generally appear around the time of the Angoulême International Comics Festival where they receive their first public exposure. Well known international comic artists including Anke Feuchtenberger, Henning Wagenbreth, Blanquet and David Polonsky have participated in the Actus Tragicus projects. To date, Actus Tragicus have published nine books and numerous series, as well as a special comics album, Dead Herring Comics.
