9/11 Graphic Novel by Sid Jacobson and Ernie Colón Excerpted in Slate

A hardcover graphic novel about 9/11 titled The 9/11 Report: A Graphic Adaptation is on sale. Slate has previews.

Mike's 2 cents: I live about a mile from the World Trade Center. I remember that day, and I remember the smoke and the all the papers falling through the air. I remember going to the ATM to take out a bunch of money, just in case I couldn't ever again take out money. I remember the confusion. I remember seeing people stream over the bridges, some of them with soot on them, walking in legion.

I worked at the WTC before I became a full-time freelance cartoonist. I'm not ready to devour 9/11 as popular entertainment. Nope. No way. Too soon.
