They'll have 24 feet to cover, but we're pretty sure they'll get through it in an hour. "Easily one of the most important journalists, writers, and cartoonists alive, every stroke of his assured and humblingly mature pen captures what the camera simply cannot." -- Chris Ware Joe Sacco's acclaimed books include Palestine, Safe Area Gorazde, andFootnotes in Gaza, as well as a best-selling collaboration with Chris Hedges, Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt. He lives in Portland, Oregon.
