Journalism

by Joe Sacco

This is a collection of darkly funny, revealing reportage of conflict zones around the world from war correspondent Joe Sacco. This graphic novel is vivid and meticulous, offering a candid reportage of events, from the war0crimes trials in The Hague, to the Saharan refugees washed up on the shores of Malta. Including pieces never published in the US, Sacco tackles the the war in Iraq and the torture of detainees.

 

Sacco reminds us of the power of the cartoonist and civilian journalist to chronicle the lived experience that escapes other media.
