Iraq Study Group: The Comic

Nothing goes better together than gloomy government reports and comic books, which is why Slate’s cartoon version of the 9/11 Commission Report was such a staggering artistic and commercial success that truly marked the fifth anniversary of the terror attacks for all Americans.

Unfortunately, we don’t have five years to pay some second-rate comic inkers to make up “dramatic” visuals for 100+ pages of bureaucratic surrender, so we’ve just slapped some of Baker and Hamilton’s shimmering prose atop Slate’s 9/11 comic.

Join us after the jump for a very special “We give up!”
