In this chapter, I examine claims made concerning the “inherent subjectivity” of comics journalism, as practised by the cartoonist Joe Sacco in graphic novels like Palestine and Safe Area Goražde, versus the “objectivity” of traditional journalistic practice. I explore some of the issues raised by the non-fiction graphic novel and interrogate the concept of comics journalism by appealing to another model of non-fiction representation: the documentary film. I develop an ideal-typical distinction between the reporting of information and the communication of experience, which is ultimately rooted in the work of critical theorist Walter Benjamin. I then use examples from Palestine to situate Sacco on the continuum between information and experience.
