UNITED WE DRAW

The greatest writers and artists in comics join with an unprecedented coalition of publishers to create two volumes reflecting on a tragedy that changed the world. Offered separately, but released, marketed and publicized together, each volume consists of dozens of profoundly moving, contemplative stories about the events of September 11 and their aftermath.

Volume One

A cover by The New Yorker's Eric Drooker tops a collection of personal and profoundly moving stories from some of the greatest writers and artists in comics, including Frank Miller?s reflections on the power of faith; Jim Mahfood?s personal view of the Arab-American experience before and after September 11; a story by Alan Moore and Melinda Gebbie; and Bryan Talbot's reflection on the meaning of entertainment in the days after the attacks.

Written by Frank Miller, Alan Moore, Will Eisner, Paul Chadwick, Tony Millionaire, Stan Sakai, Bryan Talbot, Jim Mahfood, Robert Smigel, and various.

Art by Miller, Eisner, Chadwick, Millionaire, Sakai, Talbot, Mahfood, P. Craig Russell, Dave Gibbons, Peter Kuper, Lenil Yu, Mike Mignola, Alex Maleev, and various.

Synopsis:

Chaos! Comics, Dark Horse Comics, Image Comics — with assistance from Oni Press, Top Shelf Productions, and others present a collection of stories and illustrations from an incredibly diverse array of talented writers and artists. The New Yorker's Eric Drooker contributes a cover showing a cityscape that is simultaneously ancient and modern, mournful and hopeful, with an artist at the center, empowered to interpret a tragic landscape. Among Volume 1's contributors are writer/artist William Stout, who shares the true story of a Yugoslavian citizen's love of Americans; Stan Sakai, vividly recalling his last visit to New York City; and Paul Chadwick, who offers his interpretation of the heroism of the passengers on Flight 93, whose sacrifice kept September 11 from being an even more tragic day. Cartoonists Tony Millionaire, Sam Henderson, Mike Diana, Scott Morse, Mark Crilley, Roger Langridge, Chris Eliopoulos, and Mark Martin are among those offering differing takes on a range of subjects spanning from terrorism and heroism to survival and the challenges of parenting. Other stories include an illustrated essay by Dean Motter; a Walt Whitman-penned meditation on death illustrated by Quique Alcatena; Darko Macan's "An Expert Opinion" on breaking the cycle of violence; and "T.V. Exec Visits Ground Zero" by TV Funhouse creator Robert Smigel and his Ex-Presidents collaborator, artist Michael Kupperman. Playboy Magazine's Istvan Banyai plus Carlos Meglia, Renee French, Alex Maleev, Peter Kuper, Tommy Lee Edwards, and others offer haunting, inspiring illustrations that distill the emotions provoked by the tragic events of September 11.
