Jacobson and Col & oacute;n, with a combined six decades of comics experience, were inspired to make the book because they felt the information contained in the 9/11 Commission's report needed to be read and understood by more Americans. Their efforts resulted in a remarkable work with Jacobson's text often following word for word the original report, and Col & oacute;n's art vividly recreating the events.
The book won praise from Marvel Comics' Stan Lee: "Never before have I seen a nonfiction book as beautifully and compellingly written and illustrated as The 9/11 Report: A Graphic Adaptation . I cannot recommend it too highly. It will surely set the standard for all future works of contemporary history, graphic or otherwise, and should be required reading in every home, school and library."
