9-11 Comics

Ok, I’ll admit it.
I haven’t read the almost 600 page report from the 9-11 Commission.
Have you?

Here’s an interesting idea. The 9-11 Commission Report in a Comic Book format, and it’s set for publication next month.

Industry veterans Sid Jacobson and Ernie Colón have collaborated to produce “The 9/11 Report: A Graphic Adaptation,” which is being published by Hill and Wang, the nonfiction imprint of Farrar, Straus and Giroux.

The book condenses the nearly 600-page federal report released by the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States to fewer than 150 pages, and the creators say they hope their book will help attract young readers and others who might be overwhelmed by the original document. With sans-serif captions, artist renderings, charts and sound-describing words such as “Whooom!” and “R-rrumble,” the adaptation recounts the attacks with parallel timelines of the four hijacked planes. ~snip~

“When I first heard about it, I was very concerned,” says former New Jersey governor Thomas H. Kean, who chaired the commission. “But when I looked at it, it was absolutely accurate.”

And now, having admitted that I haven’t read the 9-11 Commission Report, I am now revealing, for the first time, that my 9th Grade book report on Moby Dick was based on my reading of the Classics Illustrated version. Sorry Mrs. Honnoll.

Happy reading,

Pajamas Media To Add New Layer Of Kevlar

It’s called PoliticsCentral, and you can view the beta site here.
The best current events site on the web is taking a step to solidify its position as the best of the best. From the mission statement:

In sum POLITICSCENTRAL will present the thoughts, opinions and insights of a broad range of people that span the American political spectrum. In doing so, it will strive to create a civil and collegial atmosphere to encourage this more thoughtful discourse on our views and aspirations.

A noble goal, and similar in fact to what was expressed by Joe Lockhart’s announcement of the October launch of Hotsoup.

My first impressions: Both of these sites represent a tremendous amount of initiative and just plain hard work. Their expressed goals of raising the level of political discourse are welcome, and I wish both of these endeavors well.

I am reminded of a statement by Joe Biden, I think it was, who said something along the lines of, (and I paraphrase) “In this country, we use rhetoric instead of bullets, and we settle our differences at the ballot box. ” Amen, Senator.
