In this Web-exclusive video, graphic artist and journalist Joe Sacco talks about his approach to telling real-life stories in comics.

Sacco’s latest project called Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt, explores trenchant poverty in America’s “sacrifice zones” and is a two-year long collaboration with fellow Moyers & Company guest, the journalist Chris Hedges. Sacco and Hedges will join us for a live chat on Wednesday, July 25 at 2 PM ET.
