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.

Hey! That's me. As some of you may know I'll be teaching a limited class of online students with Donato Giancola, Gregory Manchess, and Rebecca Guay at SmART School. I just found out my guest contributor will be David Saylor, Senior Art Director who has worked on such notable books Harry Potter and Hugo Cabret. Super excited and honored to be working with such a high caliber of professionals to say the least. For anyone interested in more info and availability for the classes click Here
