really liked it

I'm always impressed with a Sacco book--thoroughly detailed, scrupulously researched, relentlessly intricate. I can't tell if there are too many characters or I'm just not as familiar (or paying attention) as much as I should, but this was definitely the most complex story he's told as of yet. Drawings are busy, so it's sometimes hard to get a clean-read on the story, as things are interwoven so densely on the page. I think I'm more of a fan of "The Fixer" or "Safe Area Gorazde" but this one really goes a lot of extra steps beyond his other book on Palestine, plus it shows many of the issues and concerns rarely heard in mainstream media on the plight of Palestinians.
