Footnotes in Gaza: A Graphic Novel by Joe Sacco
Footnotes in Gaza: A Graphic Novel

Jonathan Sloves, January 11, 2010

Joe Sacco's writing, reporting, and illustrations are individually compelling. Put 'em all together and you have great content. Part of his genius is that he takes you through the entire maze that he's gone down in collecting his information, including the dead-ends . . . and his reactions. Another part of his genius is giving you an close-up view of the Gaza Strip, which you just don't get from the general news coverage. Joe Sacco creates a very human face for those in Gaza. Please keep in mind that Joe Sacco is very sympathetic towards the denizens of Gaza, so he does not flatter the Israeli Army or politicians (this is an understatent).
