The 9/11 Report: A Graphic Adaptation is a comic book based on the report of the 9/11 Commission, written by Richie Rich creator Sid Jacobson and drawn by DC legend Ernie Colon (Green Lantern, the Flash, etc). I first happened on this last autumn, when Slate Magazine serialized the comic online, but I only recently got around to reading it in full.
The adaptation works surprisingly well. The Report is notoriously easy-to-read and gripping, more thriller than bureaucratic tome, and its most important conclusions are well suited to being depicted in sequential art. I agree with many of the Commission's recommendations (though I think they're totally, fatally backwards on no-fly lists and the like) but it was hard to appreciate all the nuances of what worked, and what failed, on 9/11. Reading this fast, gripping adaptation really made it all come to life. Link
I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
