Most methodical of Sacco's books,
This review is from: Footnotes in Gaza (Hardcover)
From reading the first Sacco's graphic novel on I was truly astonished by how emotionally immersed in a situation one can feel just by looking at some drawings. For me Footnotes in Gaza was the hardest to read on account seeing the hardship people of Gaza have to endure in present and in the past and feeling the chills to the bone. Actually had to put the book down a few times to calm myself down. In that aspect Footnotes in Gaza is quite similar to Safe Area Gorazde: The War in Eastern Bosnia 1992-1995 but I got the feeling that the level of preparation was the highest for this book and that there was the least improvisation. A really fascinating and unique form of journalism.
