(Joe Sacco – in the flesh and as you probably know him.)

In advance of the release of his latest book; Footnotes In Gaza (released December from Jonathan Cape), Joe Sacco is in the UK for a couple of appearances. He’s at Comica 2009 on September 29th and GOSH London on 30th September.

Sacco may well need little introduction; his writing gets right into the human condition during it’s worst moments in a series of graphic novels detailing life in some of the world’s bleaker areas (Palestine, Bosnia) yet always with a uniquely personal, often humorous and always original and affecting view.

    Intriguing. I saw him in a documentary some time ago. Searched high and low for his website, do you have a link to his blog at all?
