A Quick Tip by Creamtrumpet

  • Jan 20, 2011
The Palestinian / Israeli conflict is perhaps not the easiest of topics to convey through the comic book medium, but Joe Sacco does a startlingly good job of it. His raw, reportage style has a real immediacy and clarity, and his moody, black and white art is packed with detail and texture. Intelligent, witty and often brutally frank and hard hitting, Sacco's Palestine is not just a great graphic novel, but a great piece of journalism.
If you enjoy books like Persepolis and Maus, or are a fan of New Journalism, you'll definitely like this. Highly recommended.
