Joe Sacco’s Footnotes in Gaza
- … author and illustrator Joe Sacco’s Footnotes in Gaza combines hard reporting with an engrossing graphic-storytelling format to explore the history of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Sacco uses “comics journalism” — a genre he effectively invented with his previous books Palestine and Safe Area Goražde — to chronicle two reportedly overlooked Palestinian massacres that took place in the ’50s. The result is a poignant portrait of the ongoing conflict through an artistic but unflinching lens.
