The 9/11 Report: A Graphic Adaptation by Sid Jacobson and Ernie Colon

02 Oct

The library isn’t always on the ball when it comes to materials that are receiving media attention. However, the same morning that I saw a review of the 9/11 report: a graphic adaptation on the Today Show-it came in for us to process. I grabbed it to only flip through it and understand the controversy. Instead, I read it cover to cover and started babbling incessantly to anyone who would listen about it.

Have you red the 9/11 report? Neither had I and frankly, I probably never will. A graphic novel adaptation to the report is an interesting curiosity that I believe is becoming a trend. Since I’ve read the adaptation, I’ve seen several biographies and other serious works being made into high quality graphic novels. Why not? The adaptation provides an overview of the key points discussed in the 9/11 report and focuses on what lead up to the terrorist attacks on that day. The graphics are tasteful but can still evoke an emotional reaction for most. 2006, 131 pages.
