If you enjoy the work of comics journalist Joe Sacco as much as I do, get thee to a newsstand to pick up a copy of the April 2007 Harper’s Magazine. Therein, you’ll get Sacco’s first-hand look at why Iraqi soldiers won’t be replacing U.S. forces anytime soon, a 16-page story that’s both sad and riveting in detail.
Even though there’s no Web link for the Sacco story at the Harper’s Magazine site, you’ll enjoy this two-part interview with the reporter/cartoonist conducted by Huma Yusuf, a fellow journalist working in Pakistan for Confessions of an Aca/Fan: The Official Weblog of Henry Jenkins.
A sidenote: I did get a kick out of this nice political cartoon by Mr. Fish in Harper’s, spoofing the whole Captain America assassination spectacle, however.
