Event

War-zone Reportage and Comic Art
Join us at 7 pm, Thursday, May 24, when Joe Sacco, award-winning graphic journalist, is interviewed by Mercy Corps' Chief Communications Officer, Jeremy Barnicle. This event takes place at Mercy Corps Global Headquarters (Action Center, 28 SW 1st Avenue, Portland, Oregon, 97204).

Tickets are $10 (Regular), and $5 (Students) and are available through Brown Paper Tickets, by phone (503-896-5747) or in person at the Mercy Corps Action Center.

"Joe Sacco's brilliant excruciating books of war reportage are potent territory" (The New York Times Book Review).

Joe Sacco is widely believed to be the creator of war-reportage comics, and is author of American Book Award winner "Palestine" (1996), and "Safe Area GoraĹžde, The War in Eastern Bosnia 1992-95," which won the Eisner Award and was a New York Times Notable Book, and Time magazine's best comic book of 2000. "Footnotes in Gaza" (2009) recently won the Oregon Book Award.

Born in Malta and raised in Australia, Los Angeles and Portland, Sacco has an international reputation. His books are available in 14 languages and his work has appeared in many publications including  Details, The New York Times Magazine, Time, and Harper's.

"Sacco's art has the power to detain us, to keep us from impatiently wandering off in order to follow a catch-phrase or a lamentably predictable narrative of triumph and fulfillment" (Edward Said, 2001).
