Graphic depictions of war by cartoonist/journalist Joe Sacco

The World

When you conjure up the image of the typical gonzo war correspondent, you don’t necessarily envision a graphic novelist. But author Joe Sacco has been telling of the wrenching stories of war in comic book form for a decade. We talk to him about his new book, the future of journalism and why he prefers to tell gruesome war stories with drawings.

Joe Sacco’s new book is called “Footnotes in Gaza: A Graphic Novel.” Check out a slideshow of images from the book.
