Congratulations to Joe Sacco

Footnotes in Gaza

Footnotes in Gaza

The Portland cartoonist won the $10,000 Ridenhour Prize for his recent graphic novel, Footnotes in Gaza.

The Ridenhour Book Prize honors Joe Sacco’s tenacious reporting and recognizes Footnotes in Gaza as a work of profound social significance, one that explores the complex continuum of history. At a time when peace in the Middle East has never seemed more elusive, Sacco’s illustrations bear witness to the lives of those who are trapped by the conflict. This marks the first time that the Ridenhour judges have awarded the prize to an illustrated book

The Ridenhour Prize is named after Ron Ridenhour, who uncovered the My Lai massacre and later became an investigative journalist. (via)
