Words and Pictures for November 2013
Comics journalist extraordinaire and occasional Portlander Joe Sacco
returns to Words & Pictures
with a project unlike any other. The Great War
is a 24-foot long panorama depicting the first day of the Battle of the Somme
, July 1, 1916. Joe regales host S.W. Conser
with globe-trotting adventures behind this epic artwork, explains why this nearly century-old battle is still relevant today, and hints about the next in-depth project that he's hoping to publish.
