Comics artist and war correspondent Joe Sacco revisits his graphic memoir after 20 years with S.W. Conser on Words and Pictures on KBOO Radio
Portland comics journalist Joe Sacco brings a Gaza massacre to light

 

As part of the 20th anniversary commemoration of Words and Pictures, we revisit our January 2010 conversation with Portland artist and self-styled "war junkie" Joe Sacco.

Sacco has carved out a niche in the publishing world for his war reportage comics.  For more than thirty years, Sacco has plunged into global hot spots to bring back detailed graphic stories of civilian bystanders.  His books include Safe Area GorazdeNotes From a Defeatist, and Palestine, which won him an American Book Award and led to a Guggenheim Fellowship.  His latest book Footnotes in Gaza takes us back to the Palestinian refugee camps to reveal first-hand accounts of a massacre that was officially suppressed for fifty years.
