I came across this collection of short graphic stories by different artists relating their reactions to the 9/11 World Trade Towers tragedy. At this date we are very close to the 10th anniversary of that day and reading these immediately brought back the shock, horror, and sadness of the day. Some are simple, one page, and wordless and I found these the most moving. The points of view vary from a person being rescued to folks at home trying to reach loved ones to Afghanis explaining events to their children. One of the most moving showed the events on flight 93. Another showed scenes with lines from the poem "In Flanders Field". Some were black and white and some in color. All reached my heart. ( )

A collection of comic book stories by various artists and writers, responding to the World Trade Center attacks of 9/11/2001. Uneven quality and interest, some are even difficult to take the meaning of. But several are genuinely moving, and all are interesting. The one which moved me the most was the first, a graphic retelling of the old poem, "In Flanders Fields". The rest don't quite come up to the level of this short heartbreaker. Frank Miller's by the way, is a particularly jarring and bitter counterpoint to the general unity of these works. ( )
