Spoiler Alert: Osama bin Laden Turns Out to Be a Pawn of Galactus 

Via Zemblan patriot J.M.: Luckily, most comic book readers have a natural capacity for the willing suspension of disbelief:
The bestselling report by the commission that examined the Sept. 11 attacks is being adapted into a graphic book, which the publisher hopes will widen the audience for the panel's findings . . . .

The graphic book cuts the panel's more than 500-page report down to 144 pages of stark comic-book-style images depicting the sequence of events for each of the four hijacked planes, according to a partial advance copy of the Farrar, Straus & Giroux book obtained by Reuters . . . .

The book was edited by Sid Jacobson, who created the Richie Rich comic series, and illustrated by Ernie Colon, who worked on comics including Spider-Man and Green Lantern.
On a related note, our beloved colleague Avedon Carol links to a startling, newly-declassified video of the presentation by Messrs. Cheney, Rumsfeld, Perle, Wolfowitz, et al that sold President Bush on the neocon plan to invade Iraq.
