Joe Sacco Signing at Gosh!

Thanks to the Lakes Festival, we already have a grade-A event lined up for you in the form of an Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips talk, but there’s more: Joe Sacco himself, author of critically-acclaimed reportage comics Safe Area Gorazde, Palestine, and many more, is going to be in the shop for a signing on the 26th of October!

His appearance coincides with the release of his new concertina book with Jonathan Cape about the First World War – titled “The Great War”, a product of Sacco’s long-standing interest with WWI, beautifully realised with his top-notch cartooning skills – and here is just how stunning it looks:

 The Guardian has this to say from its review of the book over here:

“…The Great War‘s cartoonishness – its necessary brevity – has its own uncompromising force. So many incomprehensible decisions, and so much unfathomable destruction, reduced to just 24 plates: there’s something awesome about this, and pitiful too. It’s pure, and it’s salutary.”

Sounds great, doesn’t it?

To grab a copy of that or to get any others of Sacco’s books signed by the man himself, pop along to the shop on the 26th of October, from 2pm to 3pm.

If you’re out of town or you just can’t make it, send us an email to info@goshlondon.com and we’ll reserve you a copy.

    I hope to be at signing. I would like 2 copies, one for my 11year old grandson whose greatgrandfather went over the top on the first day of the Battle of the Somme, his 18th birthday.
    His name was David Love Marshall and he was captured and spent the rest of the war working on a Swiss farm. He lived another 60 years.
