Joe Sacco has brought the plight of the Palestinians to people across the world - but he is not a journalist, historian or human rights activist, he is a cartoonist.

In his most recent work he investigated the mass killing of Palestinians in Gaza in 1956.

He told Al Jazeera why he uses comics to tell their story.
