The only reason I gave this three stars is because this is a bit of hard reading. Not hard in difficulty, but hard in the subject matter. It can be a bit depressing at times, but aside from that, this is a very worthy reading. The story covers the Bosnian war during the nineties until the Dayton Accords period. To be honest, if you want a good history of this time period along with a story of people who lived the war, this is a very good source. It is visual, as a graphic novel can be, but the text is substantial and the work as a whole is a good learning tool. Sacco gives a narrative, but there are also useful asides to give context. Overall, this work is a great example of the possibilities that graphic novels can achieve in terms of literature and visual element. By the way, if you have read works like Maus, you will likely enjoy this one as well. It was a good book to read for me. ( )

An informative and engaging graphic journey through the Serb-Bosnian conflict in former Yugoslavia in the 90's. Sacco's stories of his time in Bosnia, and the stories he relates from others, range from intense and dark to funny and endearing. By the end of the novel, I felt in some ways that I had traveled with him, met the same people and come to know them and their situation.

This is not a conflict or a region I knew much about when I picked up this book. I had some vague memories from childhood, and more recently the trials of Slobodan Milošević and Ratko Mladić. Some parts of the left in the United States still hold that much of the ethnic cleansing against Muslims in the region was a myth made to help extend NATO power. Reading Safe Area Goražde gave me more information from someone who traveled there during the conflict, witnessed the damage and heard the stories of people who had witnessed the horror of ethnic cleansing by Serbian militias.

This is a well-illustrated and relatively quick read, I highly recommend it. ( )

Safe Area Goražde gets four stars because it covers a war that doesn't get enough attention. It earns its four stars for giving voice to many who would not have otherwise been heard. It gets four stars for not shying away from the horror of the war. And it gets four stars for trying to educate a people.

As an annal of the Bosnian War as told through graphic novel, Safe Area Goražde succeeds. It could be better. It tells about only a fragment of the conflict, but this is to be expected, I guess, in a work of journalism by a solo observer. But, Sacco does not remain an impartial observer as one would expect from this style of journalism. My complaints about Sacco do not end there.

Sacco's gross misrepresentation of self was horribly distracting. It's not that Sacco is a fabulous artist, particularly in regards to the human face, but no character is portrayed as cartoonish and malformed as Sacco's own. Having finished the book, I did a search for the author's photo, half expecting to find a monstrous facsimile of the Sacco character. Nope, Sacco's a pretty normal looking guy.

Perhaps this is a reflection of his character, which is also unappealing. Sacco comes off as sort of an invasive creeper, in my opinion. I could not trust the guys intentions. And if this is how the author himself presents his character, I have to wonder how much worse it might have truly been.
Safe Area Goražde is a good graphic novel almost entirely because of its subject. The authorial intrusion was unnecessary though. Was Sacco's character needed at all? Sure, it helps place the journalist in the conflict, but I would've been more invested in the story at the heart of the book with his inclusion kept to an absolute minimum. It's the promise of his presence in his other works of journalism that will likely keep me away. ( )

This graphic novel has better explained the origins and start of the Bosnian Wars, than anything else I’ve read. But the most horrifying thing is the similarities I see happening now in U.S. politics. ( )

In late 1995, only a month after the Bosnian War's official cease-fire, cartoonist Joe Sacco successfully navigated United Nations red tape, obtained a press pass and hopped aboard an armored vehicle to the besieged town of Goražde. Wanting more than simply to collect interviews and photo opportunities, Sacco embedded himself in the community, gaining the trust of residents and refugees alike, even forming some close friendships. Their horrifying experiences and misery are illustrated here in disquieting detail.

Safe Area Goražde is a phenomenal and unforgettable read. Prior to reading, I'd had only a vague understanding of the conflict and the players involved -- now I'm certain I'll never forget. ( )
