Comicbook journalism

War reporter cartoonist Joe Sacco is interviewed in the Star Tribune. Socca has cartooned from Palestine to Bosnia and, most recently, Iraq,

I certainly wondered how seriously I would be taken when I started “Palestine.” First of all, comics at the time were still dismissed by the mainstream. And comics about Palestinians? Here was a medium that isn’t taken seriously addressing a subject that isn’t much liked. I actually thought it would be commercial suicide. But now comics are golden in this way that editors are beginning to pay attention. Every now and then something gets thrown my way that I never dreamed people would have wanted me to do years ago. link
