In late 1991 and early 1992, Joe Sacco spent two months with Palestinians in the Occupied Territories, traveling and taking notes. Upon returning to the U.S., he started writing and drawing Palestine, which combined the techniques of eyewitness reportage with the medium of comic-book storytelling to explore this complex, emotionally weighty situation.

I love this graphic novel! It really helped me see what hardships the Palestinian people are suffering!

Drawn to this graphic novel after my exposure to the Persepolis series, I found this to be an excellent introduction to the Palestinian, modern day plight. Fortunately, Sacco has provided a succession of novels since this one for further examination of the issue.

This graphic novel presents the Palestinian point-of-view of the Israeli-Palesentinian conflict since World War 2; thus sharing a perspective not often voiced in the West. A highly enthralling novel.
