Abstract

Joe Sacco was interviewed as a keynote event during the second Amsterdam Comics Conference "Drawing Yourself in and out of It" in 2018. The acclaimed Maltese-American cartoonist spoke with three interviewers, each focusing on a particular aspect of his artistic and journalistic practice. Aimée de Jongh, a successful comics artist from the Netherlands, started by inviting Sacco to talk about his work in the field and his research habits. Comics scholar Rik Spanjers then engaged with Sacco about the ways in which he creates comics pages out of his experiences in the field. Historian Kees Ribbens concluded the interview by inquiring about the impact of Sacco's work on the conflicts and histories that it documents.
