"Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt" Graphic Novel
Journalist Chris Hedges collaborated with comics artist and journalist Joe Sacco on "Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt", an illustrated book dealing with what Hedges describes as "sacrifice zones". You can listen as Chris Hedges discusses these issues with Bill Moyers here. It ends with commentary from Joe Sacco and showcases some of his illustrated comic panels.
You can also see more of the artwork in an audio slide show of "Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt" here.
If you find these types of issues interesting and relevant I would also suggest checking out the graphic novel "A People's History of American Empire" by Howard Zinn. Here's a short audio, visual presentation of the novel, narrated by Viggo Mortensen. Artwork by Mike Konopacki.
