review 1: I'm conflicted about giving this a certain number of stars since these writers were clearly going for something different than most other graphic novelists. Nonetheless, I thoroughly enjoyed this. The artwork is vivid and nuanced and peculiar in that Sacco way, and the overall de...

review 1: Angustiós reportatge del fets de Rafah del 1956 en que fa un magnífic excercisi de comparació entre el que va passar el 1956 i el present. La meticulosa reconstrucció i repetitiva seqüència de fets, junt amb un meticulós excercisi de recreació fotogràfica de la realitat dona una ...

review 1: This is the most impressive book I have encountered in a very long time. It is a staggering wordless graphic history of the first day of the battle of Somme. In one continuous panel Sacco depicts the progression of the bloodiest day in World War I. It is a remarkable format for a...

review 1: Joe Sacco tells the stories that no one else will. In this book, he goes into India, Palestine, Malta, Iraq and Chechnya to tell the stories of suffering, of refugees running from their war-torn homes and families who are struggling against hunger. His illustrations are illuminat...

review 1: "History is that certainty produced when the imperfections of memory meet the inadequacies of documentation" - Sense of an Ending . The Trials and tribulations of the Palestinian - Gaza lot during the Suez canal crisis is a perfect example where this Julian Barnes quote holds tru...

review 1: Sacco is a striking comic artist. His figures and scenes often spill over the edges of frames or approach the reader in sudden, intense zooms. He is also a dogged reporter and historian, and this book is a sobering record of two massacres of Palestinian men by Israeli soldiers du...

review 1: Sacco's war-reportage comics have always been great. This one suffers as a result of its premise - a massacre of Palestinian men in 1956. The event is covered ad nauseum, from a dozen different angles. It also has a bit of modern day reporting, but it fails to live up to the high...

review 1: Outstanding work by Sacco and essential reading for anyone who has appreciated his full length books such as Safe Area Gorazde and Palestine. These shorter pieces are wide ranging in time and place but the most impressive ones are the longer ones, on African refugees in Malta, on...
