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.



WAR'S END is now collected in THE FIXER AND OTHER STORIES.

The Fixer

Joe Sacco

When bombs are falling and western journalism is the only game left in town "fixers" are the people who sell war correspondents the human tragedy and moral outrage that makes news editors happy.
Its dangerous, a little amoral and a lot desperate.
Award-winning comix-journalist Joe Sacco goes behind the scene of war correspondence to reveal the anatomy of the big scoop. He begins by returning us to the dying days of Balkan conflict and introduces us to his own fixer; a man looking to squeeze the last bit of profit from Bosnia before the reconstruction begins. Thanks to a complex relationship with the fixer Joe discovers the crimes of opportunistic warlords and gangsters who run the countryside in times of war. But the west is interested in a different spin on the stories coming out of Bosnia. Almost ten years later, Joe meets up with his fixer and sees how the new Bosnian government has "dealt" with these criminals and Joe ponders who is holding the reins of power these days

"Sacco survives by making friends and living in the same conditions as those he covers. This gives his work a kind of street-level grit and insight, and it also makes it hard to romanticize the people he writes about...His drawings are stark, realistic visionsof the gray, depressing world of a land mangled by artillery shells and deformed by poverty." --Chris Hedges, New York Times
