Customer Review

on 16 July 2010
Joe Sacco's latest offering is by far his most accomplished. I won't lie, I am a big fan and it would have taken a huge dip in form from his previous works for me to suggest anything other than buying it and avidly reading it from cover to cover in one go but in Footnotes, you really get the feeling that you are reading the work of an author at the very top of his game.

Sacco's illustrations have really moved on from his earlier works but what remains the same is his wonderful layering of characters, lives and stories. Where he really raises the bar is his movement between the past and the present, side by side, from one frame to another. Sacco's illustrations and storyboarding have become so good, that its the pages where there is little or no proes (check out the final 3 pages of the book) where the storytelling reaches its absolute most vivid best.

If Maus has its Pulitzer, you get the feeling that on this form, Joe Sacco has one coming!
