Synopsis: Graphic true-life spy thriller about the CIA mission that overthrew Iran’s democracy

The year is 1953. As the value of oil skyrockets, global power brokers begin to take interest in the political regimes of the Middle East. British agents have controlled Iranian oil exports for a generation, but the Shah’s hold on peace is shaky as a charismatic leader enters the scene.

Mohammed Mossadegh’s calls to overthrow the elites resonates among the people, and as rumors circulate of an impending revolt, American, British and Persian agents hatch plans of overthrow. Deals are made behind closed doors. Every actor has a stake. Iran’s oil will flow, by any means necessary.

Operation Ajax is the story of the CIA coup that removed the democratically elected Mossadegh and reinstated the monarchy. Introduced by New York Times–bestselling author of All the Shah’s Men, Stephen Kinzer, Operation Ajax is a thrilling tale of real-life intrigue.

About the Author: Mike de Seve is an Emmy-nominated animation writer and director who has worked for Dreamworks, Cartoon Network, NBC, the CW, and Warner Brothers on projects such as Madagascar, Shrek 2, and the original Beavis and ButtheadDaniel Burwen is the founder and Creative Director of Cognito Comics.
