Product Description

A landmark of journalism and the art form of comics. Based on several months of research and an extended visit to the West Bank and Gaza Strip in the early 1990s, this is a major work of political and historical nonfiction.

Prior to Safe Area Gorazde: The War In Eastern Bosnia 1992-1995―Joe Sacco''s breakthrough novel of graphic journalism―the acclaimed author was best known for Palestine, a two-volume graphic novel that won an American Book Award in 1996. Fantagraphics Books is pleased to present the first single-volume collection of this landmark of journalism and the art form of comics. Based on several months of research and an extended visit to the West Bank and Gaza Strip in the early 1990s (where he conducted over 100 interviews with Palestinians and Jews), Palestine was the first major comics work of political and historical nonfiction by Sacco, whose name has since become synonymous with this graphic form of New Journalism. Like Safe Area Gorazde, Palestine has been favorably compared to Art Spiegelman''s Pulitzer Prize-winning Maus for its ability to brilliantly navigate such socially and politically sensitive subject matter within the confines of the comic book medium. Sacco has often been called the first comic book journalist, and he is certainly the best. This edition of Palestine also features an introduction from renowned author, critic, and historian Edward Said ( Peace and Its Discontents and The Question of Palestine), one of the world''s most respected authorities on the Middle Eastern conflict. Black-and-white comics throughout

Review

"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

As vile as I find the conservative Zionists - this was horrible. Of course I lawd what Sacco''s intent, after all I bought it. But the specific way he sketched many of the faces of the young IDF, and many of the captions were not so enjoyable.

Nobody likes the IDF, but come on Joe. We need voices drawing their wicked ideology back from the brink of barbarianism, teaching them good, not just drawing hawk-beaked kids with glasses.

For so long, I have read accounts and narrations about the conflict in Palestine, about how the refugees are treated, about how not all Israeli''s want to fight, about how the Palestinian leadership is toothless and does not necessarily speak to the will of its people. Reading well written stories and non fiction, however, does not allow me to visualize the expressions, the demeanor, the angst, the humanity behind the stories. Joe Sacco''s Palestine makes sure that I never ever complain about my lack of a third eye. His drawings have captured all the human emotions that the ordinary Palestinian goes through. The despair, the anger, the arrogance that they will one day prevail .... its all depicted clearly and in a way that makes you feel as if you are in the pages of the book, living and breathing Joe''s life.

A well crafted, beautifully drawn and hauntingly real book. A must read for all graphic novel lovers.

*Please note that by way of this review, I am not debating the right or wrong of the conflict. I am only talking about the sense of ''being there'' that Joe has managed to capture*

I bought this book for one of my classes. It came in perfect condition besides the fact that there was dirt on it and it wont come off. I don''t care enough to get a refund, but it seems like I''m not the only person who had this problem

A lot of words
Reviewed in the United States on December 29, 2018
There was a lot of reading that the author should have just written a novel rather than a graphic novel. He was very informative but the abundance of writing made it difficult to enjoy the illustrations.

The Israeli-Palestinian conflict in comic book form. In this landmark of journalism and the art form of comics, Joe Sacco gives us insightful reportage at he front lines. He interviewed and encountered prisoners. refugees, protesters, wounded children, farmers and families torn apart by this conflict. Winner of the American Book Award. (His graphic novel, Safe Area Gorazde, about his time in Bosnia, won the Will Eisner Award for Best Original Graphic Novel in 2001.) He''s also contributed graphic journalism to Time magazine, Washington Monthly, and Harper''s.

Teachers/Librarians: 7th grade to adult. Its comicbook style will be of high interest level for many of our students!

This might be my favourite graphic novel ever. The way it is written and illustrated take me right there. There will be a more articulate way to put this but being written and drawn by the same guy seemed to make it work so much better than a couple of people collaborating. Maybe this is a common thing but it has been a bit more of a lesson to me about the way comics work. I’ve just bought The Fixer by Joe Sacco.

If you want to know the basics of the Palestine/Israel conflict, this graphic novel is great. It tells the history of the invasion and the 2 intifadas that followed thereafter. It''s worth a read. Sacco enters Palestine as a Westerner, a journalist, to get to grips with the situation in Palestine towards the end of the first intifada- it''s his account of it. His view of the Palestine/Israel conflict is not that of the mainstream western media, it''s the reality of the situation. Although the text can still be considered somewhat orientalist, it really allows you to get a hold of Palestinian history. I followed up reading this with some critical theory on Palestine, a text written by Said and Hitchens as well as other critics. It''s called ''Blaming the Victims'' and it''s a great follow-up read. I would recommend this text to those who don''t have much knowledge of this conflict.
