Joe Sacco (and others) at Politics and Prose

101_7278 Joe Sacco
Joe Sacco did a nice talk about his new bookish-thing, The Great War, at Politics and Prose. The audience was far more World War 1 buffs than comics buffs, although cartoonists Art Hondros, Barbara Dale, and Michael Cavna were in the audience as well as journalist Peter Carlson and cartoon librarian Sara Duke.  Politics and Prose eventually gets the video online.

Here's some more pictures of Sacco's visit.

Here's video of some earlier P&P events that haven't been linked to yet:

April 28: Joe Sacco to speak to Prof Wenthe's class at AU

Professor Michael Wenthe writes in to tell us

Next Wednesday, April 28, at 2:10 P.M. in the atrium of the Battelle-Tompkins building here at American University, Joe Sacco will give a presentation and discussion of his work (notably _Footnotes in Gaza_) as the final event in my section of LIT 215: Writers in Print / in Person. Strictly speaking, this event will constitute the last class session for the course, so pride of place for the attendees will be my eighteen students (who discussed Sacco's work this past week), but we're holding it as an open, public event in in conjunction with the Middle East Studies Program here at AU and it will be generally advertised on campus.

Personally I've never heard Sacco speak, but I like his work. I'm sorry to miss this, but work is precluding my attendance.

Joe Sacco reviewed in Washington Examiner

Joe Sacco's new book is reviewed in Washington Examiner, December 6, 2009, p. 26, but it doesn't appear to be online. Pull quotes:

"Having already established his reputations as the world's leading comics journalist, Sacco is now making a serious case to be considered one of the world's top journalists, period."

"Sacco's art is alternately epic and intimate, but he exceeds himself in the scope of his ambition (particularly in one sequence that shows in vivid terms how desert refugee camps from 1948 turned into the teeming slums of today). But it's his exacting and harrowing interviews that make this book an invaluable and wrenching piece of journalism."

The review is unsigned.
