Product Overview

Based on years of research and extended visits to the West Bank and Gaza Strip in the early 1990s (Sacco conducted over 100 interviews with Palestinians and Jews), Palestine is the first major comics work of political nonfiction by Sacco, who has often been called the first comic book journalist and single-handedly pioneered the medium to universal acclaim. This new edition of Palestine also features a lengthy introduction by the outspoken political essayist and historian Edward Said (Peace and Its Discontents and The Question of Palestine), one of the world's most respected authorities on the Middle Eastern Conflict.

Praise
"[A] brilliant, excruciating [book] of war reportage....Sacco draws broadly and boldly. We take in his characters right away: their features and expressions are easy to read; each body has its weight, line and style of moving. (Or of sitting still.) He works in black and white, the main tradition for political cartoons."
From the Publisher
Annotation Originally published in two volumes, Joe Sacco's non-fiction graphic novel won an American Book Award in 1996. A journalist who works in the comics medium, Sacco here reports on his trip to Jerusalem, the West Bank, and the Gaza Strip, and his experiences among Palestinians.
