Reviews

Sacco uses the comic book format to its fullest extent, creating bold perspectives that any photojournalist would envy.-- "Utne Reader"
Sacco is a pioneer.-- "Journal of Palestinian Studies"
Based on his research, interviews, and personal experiences in Palastinian Occupied Territories in 1991 and 92, [Palestine] takes you there and gives you a first-hand account of the atrocities and suffering in the conflict with Israel. He gives you a close up visual rendering of the physical and emotional conditions of the people, who struggle daily for survival... Sacco has rendered the terrible conditions of life into a compelling and sympathetic artistic documentary. It is sad, but most good stories are sad... What's better, his drawing is detailed and realistic, very approachable and interesting.-- "American in Auckland"
