Reviews

"This is incredible. It is fantastic. He's showing you far more than a film or photographs could. It's just drawing - it's a superb example of what art can do." -- DAVID HOCKNEY * Sunday Times *
"Insanely beautiful... This is yet another total masterpiece from one of the most important comic artists of all time." -- Stuart Hammond * Dazed and Confused *
"A vast panorama of the first day of the battle of the Somme. This is a stark, uncompromising book ... A breath-taking achievement too, its beauty and power lying in its attention to detail, the way it forces the reader to look, and look again ... The kind you need to own, the better that you might return to it again and again." -- Rachel Cooke * Observer *
"Stunning." -- Carl Wilkinson * Financial Times *
"It is a powerful, sustained piece of work, an example of Sacco's journalistic approach." * Glasgow Sunday Herald *
