This thesis can be seen as an introduction to comic journalism, a genre of comics that investigates and documents real events in a journalistic way, focusing on the truth rather than effects and superpowers. But this thesis is just as much an analysis that looks into the genre with a historical approach, examining how comics can be used to tell history, in particular the history of the oppressed in war time. Furthermore, this thesis examines the comic genre as a journalistic medium, illustrating the pros and cons of this relatively new kind of journalism, using the well-known comic journalist Joe Sacco and his publications Palestine and Safe Area Goražde as points of reference.
