War's End: Profiles from Bosnia 1995-96

Joe Sacco

"[Christmas With Karadzic is] a searing and amusing look at the motley collection of reporters, war profiteers, criminals, soldiers, and hapless civilians trapped in a war zone."
�The New York Times

"Sacco is one of the most astute war-zone correspondents working today." �Rolling Stone

How does an artist reconcile being forced to go to the front line of a brutal conflict that will change his life and homeland forever? What happens when a reporter finally comes face to face with an evil war criminal? Before his groundbreaking graphic novels Safe Area Gorazde and The Fixer, Palestine author Joe Sacco created two short stories of the characters from each side of the crossfire. Collected together for the first time in Wars� End: Profiles from Bosnia 1996-1996 are the acclaimed Soba and Christmas with Karadzic. In Soba, Joe Sacco captures the internal torment of the romanticized Sarajevo artist-warrior who captivated the western media with his guitar and hard partying ways. In Christmas with Karadzic, Sacco gives the reader an inside peek of the darkly humorous news process that doesn�t make the headlines back home as he chases after one of the most hated and sought-after Bosnian Serb leaders and war criminals.
