Comics Artist Joe Sacco on His Work

July 20, 2012

Since the early 1990s, graphic artist and journalist Joe Sacco has collected acclaim for combining on-the-ground reporting in some of the grittiest international conflict zones with sharply stylized biographical cartoons. In this extended cut of the portrait of Sacco from this week’s Moyers & Company, we explore his full body of work and hear about the experiences that propelled him to spawn the unique genre of comics journalism.

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.
