9780224072700: Notes from a Defeatist

Sacco paved the way for Palestine with his powerful triptych on modern war and its innocent victims, originally published in his comic Yahoo and collected here: 'When Good Bombs Happen to Bad People' chronicles the effect of aerial warfare on civilians, from Germany and Japan in World War II to Libya in 1986; 'More Women, More Children, More Quickly' is written from a victim's perspective, as Sacco illustrates his mother's harrowing experiences during Italian and German WWII raids on Malta; and 'How I Loved the War', Defeatist's centrepiece, is Sacco's impassioned but sardonic reflection on the Gulf War, and the surrounding propaganda and media circus. Published during the reign of Bush I, it has since acquired an even sharper relevance. Defeatist also features Sacco's first (relatively) long-form piece, 'In the Company of Long Hair', a hilarious roadie's-eye view of an American punk band's eventful European tour from Amsterdam to Madrid, as well as 'Cartoon Genius', 'Voyage to the End of the Library', 'A Disgusting Experience', and 'On My Day Off', a cycle of funny and rueful autobiographic comics that display Sacco's graphic verve to its fullest extent. Defeatist is rounded off with a large section of Sacco's earliest, pointedly satirical strips (none of which has been collected in book form before) and new introductions and notes by the author. A combination of youthful indiscretions and mature masterworks, Notes from a Defeatist spotlights the work of a brilliant young artist as he defines the capabilities and potential of his chosen medium.

About the Author:

Joe Sacco, one of the world's foremost cartoonists, is widely hailed as the creator of war-reportage comics. He is the author of Palestine, Safe Area Gorazde, The Fixer, Notes from a Defeatist , Footnotes in Gaza and Journalism, all published by Jonathan Cape.

From Booklist:

Before he received due acclaim and an American Book Award for his comics-format journalism from Palestine (collected in Palestine, 2001) and Bosnia (Safe Area Goradze, 2000), Sacco toiled in alternative comics for a decade. The fruits of that labor are collected here. Much of this early work is minor, though entertaining, including short satirical pieces, a lengthy chronicle of Sacco's days as roadie and resident cartoonist for a rock band touring Europe, and cynical reflections on his unhappy stint working in a public library. Other pieces presage his mature, politically oriented work: a history of aerial bombing that targets civilian populations, the story of his mother's harrowing childhood experiences during the World War II bombing of Crete, and a mordant and, unfortunately, once-again relevant account of his increasingly distraught state during the lead-up to the Gulf War. The best pieces attest that, had Sacco not found his niche as the premier exponent of comics journalism, he would have wound up among the foremost practitioners of autobiographical comics.
