Flip side: A graphic look at 9/11

With the media feverishly reminding us that this year marks the fifth anniversary of the 2001 terrorist attacks, many of us turned away from the din. But Sid Jacobson and Ernie Colón found a compelling and different way of looking at history.

The pair have created “The 9/11 Report: A Graphic Adaptation,” which is an artistic version of the 9/11 Commission’s final report. The commission endorsed the Jacobson/Colón book.

The graphic presentation provides a significant amount of information in a somewhat more accessible format.

Slate.com, an online magazine, published excerpts of the book. Find a link to those excerpts on FCW.com Download’s Data Call at www.fcw.com/download.
