Troofer Comic Books Coming
Rick Veitch is a talented guy; I loved the Greyshirt series (an homage to the Spirit) he did with Alan Moore about a decade ago. But this sounds like crap:
And this isn't the first time Veitch has used 9/11 as a theme. In his Vertigo Comics graphic novel Can't Get No, he used one man's lost week before, during and after the attacks as a view of it from the microcosm, but with The Big Lie, Veitch says, "we're trying to present the whole macroscopic landscape of politics, finance and military."
Going into this project, he didn't consider himself a "Truther," yet living during the eras of the Pentagon Papers, Watergate, Iran/Contra and the invasion of Iraq, Veitch admits that he's skeptical about any "official" story provided by the government.
"Reading the 9/11 Commission Report, it's pretty clear that a lot of important evidence about the lead-up to the attacks and the collapse of the towers was ignored or glossed over," he explains.
Why do I get the feeling that he's never read The Looming Tower or the NIST Reports?
Incidentally, this isn't the first Troofer comic book; about five years ago Spain Rodriguez (creator of Trashman!) did one called Dies Irae.
Update: Apparently this was a hired-out project with a Truther named Brian Romanoff contracting the work to Image Comics and Veitch:
It is in the name of truth and justice for the victims of 9/11 and their family members, that we are committed to sharing the truth about what occurred on September 11th. Truth Be Told Comics (TBT) was formed to facilitate the project of getting critical 9/11 information before the huge number of comic readers across America and the world. Our goal is to present the most obvious elements of the 9/11 crimes and cover-up: the multiple advanced warnings, the multiple war-games on the day of, our missing air defense system, the demolitions of the WTC towers, 9/11 Commission Report and more.
Romanoff is a typical Troofer fruitcake. Protests Bohemian Grove:
Yet the ritual on this day includes only one protester, bearded, lanky Brian Romanoff, 28, who has been working mostly alone since the two-week encampment began on July 16. He says he has adopted a nonconfrontational approach, better to spread the truth about the collapse of the World Trade Center buildings.
Two words: controlled demolition.
No particular surprise, he's got the creative facial hair thing going on in the photo that accompanies the article.
