Joe Sacco uses short-form comics journalism to report on conflict zones around the world. This collection showcases his darkly funny, revealing war reporting. A vivid and meticulous nonfiction graphic novel offering a candid reportage of events, from the war crimes 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.
