The Genius of Joe Sacco

joe_sacco.jpg

Over the last 15 years, Joe Sacco's work has truly transcended the comic/cartooning genre, and he's produced some of the most moving and incisive visual journalism I've ever read on the world's trouble spots. This weekend's Guardian featured "Complacency Kills", an eight page diary of a trip to Iraq in the company of the Marines, and it's free to download here (36 MB, but really worth it if you have the bandwidth.

Sacco's very personal method of storytelling clearly illustrates the tragedy of conflict for all particpants. It's gut wrenching, heartbreaking and incredibly compelling.I would HIGHLY recommend his earlier books - Palestine and Safe Area Gorazde.
