JOE SACCO Retrospective

The Oregonian reviews a new JOE SACCO Retrospective
They link to a prior profile of the Sacco and describe him rather well as a cross between R. Crumb and superb CNN correspondent Christiane Amanpour, and summarize the show thusly:

Whether you call it journalism, comics or both, it is this holistic sense of broad history and personal narrative that elevates Sacco's comics. It's why these stories of Palestinians and Bosnians may endure far longer than the conventional reporting Sacco once aspired to.

If you're in Oregon the show runs at Pacific Northwest College of Art until Feb. 24.
