As the son of WW II-era parents, journalist Joe Sacco was heavily affected by the plight of people around the world forced from their homes while under foreign occupation. His Palestine series of comic books won the National Book Award in 1996, and his Safe-Area Gorazde and The Fixer have earned him a unique place in the world of comics and graphic novels. This book is an intriguing look at a popular writer and includes numerous examples of his color and black-and-white illustrations.
