Non-fiction graphic novel E. Europe em Name that Book (Novembro 2010)

Críticas

Art Spiegelman, the author of Maus, once said "In a world where Photoshop has outed the photograph to be a liar, one can now allow artists to return to their original function — as reporters." And that’s what Joe Sacco is: an artist and a reporter. Joe Sacco spent five months in late 1994 and early 1995 in Bosnia interviewing people who’d survived the Bosnian War. The result was this book, Safe Area Gorazde, which is basically a written and visual documentation of what he experienced and learned there. If you don’t know, Gorazde is a town in eastern Bosnia that was a UN-designated “safe area” during the Bosnian War. But, as you’ll learn from this book, the Gorazde was anything but safe.

I think you should read this book if you’re interested in history and human nature. But this book is more than a history lesson, it’s a way to meet real people who survived a great human rights tragedy and to see the destruction wrought by the conflict.

1990eko hamarkadaren hasieran, Joe Sacco izeneko komikigile gazte batek Palestinara bidaiatu zuen, eta han bizitakoak komikiaren forma artistikopean dokumentatzea erabaki zuen. Merkatuetan paseoan ibili zen, presoei elkarrizketak egin zizkien, manifestariekin solasean aritu zen, nekazariekin bazkaldu zuen, ospitaleetako gaixoak bisitatu zituen, eta, finean, Gaza eta Zisjordaniako herritarren bizitzan eta kulturan murgildu zen.

Esperientzia zirraragarri haren ondorioz sortu zen Palestina, Saccoren aurreneko kazetaritza-lan handia, eta azken urteotan argitaratu den obra politiko eta historikorik onenetakoa. Nobela grafiko hau kazetaritza berriaren oinordeko zuzena da, eta komiki-kazetaritza deitutako korrontearen funtsezko pieza: dokumentu etnografiko aparta, garai hartako kronika garratza eta denboran gehiegi luzatzen ari den gatazka bati buruzko ikuspegi ezin pertsonalagoa izateaz gain, zinez liburu baliagarri eta esanguratsua da Ekialde Ertainak geopolitika garaikidean jokatzen duen eta garai hartan jokatzen zuen rola ulertzeko.

Palestina Art Spiegelmanen Maus sarituarekin konparatu izan da, Saccoren lan hau trebezia eta distira handiz barneratzen delako sozialki eta politikoki oso delikatua den gai batean, komikigintzaren mugetatik irten gabe. Edizio honek Edward Said idazle, kritikari eta historialari ospetsuak idatzitako hitzaurrea ere badu; hain zuzen ere, Said Ekialde Ertaineko gatazkaren inguruko aditurik errespetatuenetakoa da mundu osoan.

Obra honek American Book Award saria irabazi zuen 1996an

Another tale from the former Yugoslavia by Joe Sacco. I enjoyed this a lot - a good comic. The book focuses on Neven, a "fixer" for international visitors (mostly journalists) who need someone to show them the ropes of Sarajevo. Through Neven, it tells the story of Sarajevo in the Yugoslavian war - the sieges and the internal struggles. One thing it does really well is show the relationship between the unofficial paramilitary groups and the Bosnian government - naturally, it's a pretty ugly story.

Some of Sacco's writing seemed a little off here - too much talking to the reader as if they were Neven. Felt a bit disorienting, but not in they way that might have worked. Also the jumping around in time seemed a little gratuitous at times. Still, another wonderfully drawn, powerful book by Sacco.
