Joe Sacco's Great War

We were pretty taken when the package bearing Joe Sacco’s newest work arrived. Outwardly, it’s a book, very much like his other graphic novels and comics. But upon opening it, readers are met with an immense 24 foot long tableau of the Battle of the Somme.

We bring you NPR’s treatment of the book on this week’s show, but be sure to catch Oregon Art Beat’s story about Joe Sacco and his process, Sunday night on OPB-TV, or right here right now.
