About this product
- DescriptionThe Warren Commission Report: A Graphic Adaptation uses the language of comics to clarify a complex, heavily disputed topic. Within days of the murder of President Kennedy on November 22, 1963, his successor appointed a seven-member commission to investigate the assassination and the killing of the alleged assassin. In their report, the Warren Commission defended the conclusion that there was credible evidence supporting any theories that conflicted with its conclusions. Now, in time for the 50th anniversary of the presentation of the report to President Johnson, the comics medium provides a unique means of testing that claim, using graphic storytelling techniques to unravel competing narratives and make plain how decisions taken in the days that followed the events shaped the way those events would be reconstructed by the commission and the reasons why conspiracy theories still abound. The authors don't pretend to have their own solution, but instead focus on the evidence and the interlacing eyewitness accounts and the government's intention to reach what some might call a predetermined outcome.
