Joe Sacco’s work has appeared in many periodicals, anthologies, and books, ranging from work in issues of comics anthologies like Drawn & Quarterly #8 and Weirdo #23 to magazines and newspapers like Rolling Stone and the Guardian. Fortunately, Sacco’s work has been collected in a number of books, making his primary works readily available. The following bibliography lists Sacco’s major publications, noting when material originally published serially or separately has been collected (as in Notes from a Defeatist, which collects Sacco’s series Yahoo and other comics, or The Fixer and Other Stories, which collects material published in two separate volumes, The Fixer and War’s End). But I Like It and Notes from a Defeatist collect Sacco’s early works, and Journalism collects stories originally published in a variety of magazines and newspapers. Since these stories are readily available in book form, I have not listed original periodical publications for short works. The final two sections of the bibliography list Sacco’s collaborative books and editorial projects.
