Actus Tragicus

The Actus Tragicus Comics Collective, sometimes credited as Actus Comics or simply Actus, is a group of five Israeli comics artists founded in 1995 by Rutu Modan and Yirmi Pinkus. Other members include Batia Kolton, Itzik Rennert and Mira Friedmann.

Actus Tragicus was founded to enable its members, all professional illustrators and comics artists, to reach an audience outside of Israel by publishing a book each year, free of any cultural limitations or economic hindrances. Their books appear around the time of the Angoulême International Comics Festival in France where they receive their first public exposure.

Actus Tragicus have published eight books in their series so far, as well as a special comics album, "Dead Herring Comics", which featured an excerpt from Art Spiegelman's In the Shadow of No Towers.
