Good and often difficult reporting.
I do think Sacco is at his best with book length journalism but a very solid work.
The story about poverty in India, refugees in Chechnya, and about African immigrants in Malta were particularly good.
Joe Sacco is one of the best journalists working in the world today. I wish more journalists were able to show themselves in their work, it leads to richer journalism.
I would recommend strongest his 3 major works: Palestine, Footnotes in Gaza, and Safe Area Goradze which are all amazing. Do expect with Joe Sacco’s works though that they will hit you in the gut. And frankly in the United States especially it is important to hear the Palestian view of things. The West Bank is an apartheid state as I talked about in an earlier blog post talking about Palestine and Guy Delisle’s “Jerusalem” and the “Politics of Palestine in Graphic Novels.”
