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 . . . .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.
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.
