Item Details

Baker & Taylor
A graphic novel of the report of the 9/11 Commission reveals the Commission's findings regarding the terrorist attacks on the United States and its recommendations concerning what the United States government needs to do in its wake.

McMillan Palgrave
The 9/11 Report for Every American


On December 5, 2005, the 9/11 Commission issued its final report card on the government's fulfillment of the recommendations issued in July 2004: one A, twelve Bs, nine Cs, twelve Ds, three Fs, and four incompletes. Here is stunning evidence that Sid Jacobson and Ernie Colón, with more than sixty years of experience in the comic-book industry between them, were right: far, far too few Americans have read, grasped, and demanded action on the Commission's investigation into the events of that tragic day and the lessons America must learn.

Using every skill and storytelling method Jacobson and Colón have learned over the decades, they have produced the most accessible version of the 9/11 Report. Jacobson's text frequently follows word for word the original report, faithfully captures its investigative thoroughness, and covers its entire scope, even including the Commission's final report card. Colón's stunning artwork powerfully conveys the facts, insights, and urgency of the original. Published on the fifth anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the United States, an event that has left no aspect of American foreign or domestic policy untouched, The 9/11 Report puts at every American's fingertips the most defining event of the century.

Cover photo is strange. Makes it look like the Empire State Building is on fire too.

A great read to remind us that information comes in many forms - it is unlikely that I'll ever read the report but this quick graphic novel was just the ticket to get informed!

Probably the next best thing to read if you don't read the commission report itself (or at least that's my assumption). Doesn't get into the drama, mostly keeps to the "facts" (whether the report findings are truthful, plenty of people have opinions on that), and thus is a bit dry
