Some might wince at the idea of a comic book treatment of the September 11, 2001, attack on the World Trade Center. But consider the history of the medium: Some of the most brilliant graphic novels ever created have covered horror and tragedy (Art Spiegelman's Maus on the Holocaust, Joe Sacco's Palestine and Safe Area Gorazde, just to name a few). In their graphic adaptation of the final report of the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States, The 9/11 Report: A Graphic Adaptation (also available in hardcover), comics veterans Sid Jacobson and Ernie Colon take advantage of the medium to create a multi-frame timeline laying out the events of that day as they happened simultaneously in different places. The effect is a coherent, if often brutal, picture of the September 11 attacks that will surely have a stronger and wider impact on readers than any governmental report possibly could.
