9780809023707: After 9/11: America's War on Terror (2001- )

Having made The 9/11 Commission Report understandable for everyone, the award-winning, bestselling graphic novel team of Sid Jacobson and Ernie Colón use all their considerable talents to explain the post-9/11 world. Working from news reports drawn from multiple international media, Jacobson and Colón depict the critical events, decision makers, and consequences of America's "war on terror," and, most important, the context in which the war began, unfolded, and unraveled. The most demanding story they have ever tackled, After 9/11 is also the most tailor-made for their medium, capturing simultaneous events, geographic complexity, numerous participants, and a vast array of economic, statistical, and quantitative information―compellingly told through the sequential panel art narrative form unique to graphic books. Proving yet again that graphic novels best meet the challenge of giving the most information with the least amount of ink, Jacobson and Colón answer with clarity and unforgettable imagery the question: How the hell did we end up where we are?

About the Author:

Sid Jacobson was the managing editor and editor in chief for Harvey Comics, where he created Richie Rich, and executive editor at Marvel Comics. The artist Ernie Colón has worked at Harvey, Marvel, and DC Comics. At DC, he oversaw the production of Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, Blackhawk, and The Flash; at Marvel, Spider-Man. Their most recent project was The 9/11 Report: A Graphic Adaptation (H&W, 2006).

Review:

“When it comes to dramatic adaptations of factual events, nobody does it better than Sid Jacobson and Ernie Colón. After 9/11 is not only a spectacular, eminently readable graphic novel but a prime example of the perfect marriage between journalism and art.” ―Stan Lee

“In addition to providing a vividly comprehensible time line, After 9/11 makes intelligible--in a way that even an overtaxed Presidential candidate can grasp--the tribal and religious-factional complexities within Iraq and Afghanistan.” ―The New Yorker

“Ernie Colón's work has never been more effectively used. His illustrations generate a clarity and power, making complex and intensely dramatic situations comprehensible.” ―Joe Kubert

“A meditation on war, an evenly paced and sanguine presentation of America's reaction to terrorism, and the ensuing violence that trails behind the growing American and Muslim conflict in the Middle East . . . At its most brilliant, Jacobson and Colon are cartographers, assembling a map of the terror that has since erupted around the world. Starting at the beginning, they sum up each individual part, as if to pinpoint a place in the chaos and say, ‘We are here.'” ―Kai-Ming Cha, Playboy.com

After 9/11 stands apart as the graphic novel equivalent of a particularly cogent Frontline report. . . . An excellent choice for educators looking for an accessible single-volume take on the subject.” ―Publishers Weekly
