Joe Sacco is one of the world’s premier comic book artists and is widely recognized as a central figure in bringing graphic novels and sequential art into the cultural mainstream. His works including Palestine, Safe Area Gorazde, and The Fixer and Other Stories are frequently featured on university syllabi, in programs ranging from English to Political Science to Peace and Conflict Studies.
A Guggenheim fellow, Sacco’s work has been profiled by the BBC, Time Magazine, Details, Harper’s and the New York Times.
He will be speaking on a variety of subjects including his newest work, Footnotes in Gaza, his return to the Gaza strip and his attempt to get to the heart of a brutal incident from the region’s past.
