Going Graphic With 9/11

August 28th, 2006 by Larry Smith

It won’t be long until the last chapter of Shooting War is here (ETA is Thursday). Until then, we see that others find this storytelling form a good one to explore. Like our friends at that scrappy little site called Slate, which is presenting a chapter a day of Sid Jacobson and Ernie Colón’s The 9/11 Report: A Graphic Adaptation. It’s brilliant. SlateGraphic

And then there’s Liberality For All, a nasty bit of graphic novel business that envisions the dystopian future in which “a Leftist dominated nightmare where there is only one justified type of war…the war against Conservatives and their ideals.” Our friend Paul Riekhoff, who tipped us off to Liberality For All, calls it “the anti-Shooting War.” Yet just as we give voice to those who believe the government caused 9/11, when a story’s presented in a novel way, we’ll let you know, whether we like it or not.
