Unseen BIG LIE Art

Here’s a fully lettered and colored sample page from my earliest stab at THE BIG LIE.  In this unused version, the demonic face that some claim to see in photos of the attack is the narrator.  Inks by Gary Erskine; script, pencils, lettering and coloring by me.

THE BIG LIE from Image is in stores now.

    I think I would really like to see this version.

    No seriously, that’s not real is it.

    The Big Lie is the most important comic book of the year, if not decade!

    Please tell me this is not another 9-11 conspiracy book.

    I mean, just today Al-Qaida called on Ahmadinejad to end his 9/11 conspiracy theories and described his remarks as “ridiculous”.

    Hi John
    There’s a difference between the propaganda announcements of various political entities and what the architects and engineers are saying about the science. We need a real independent investigation to honestly answer the rather large and gaping questions that Ahmadinejad and his ilk are able to exploit for their own purposes.

    Rick, you are so talented and this makes you look like a nut.

    Since when does it make one crazy to question the government’s story? Historically, the public has been lied to over and over again by our government and military leaders. Here’s just a few of their Big Lies that are not under dispute:

    Secret Bombing of Cambodia

    Pentagon Papers


    Invasion of Iraq

    I loved the first one. Great work. Is this a mini series? When will next one come out? I can’t wait as I think first was brilliant. It’s art. It’s asking questions, nothing wrong with that.
    Government is supposed to work for us. Fear us, not vice versa. If we want an independent investigation we should get it.

    How can you say no to these people John?

    Remember the “Jersey Girls” asking for a Commission to be formed to figure out why their husbands were allowed to be killed?

    Remember when Henry Kissinger was appointed to that Commission as a Director? He had to step down because of his dealings with the Saudis, particularly the Bin Laden group. Then Phillip Zelikow, who was extremely close to and had previously written a book with Condi Rice, took over.

    Max Cleland resigned saying it was a “whitewash” and a “national disgrace.” Most Commission members are now on record saying they were “held back” and “restricted” in many ways. Some are even calling for a new 9/11 investigation too! (See Bob Graham)

    Remember when Bush and Cheney would only talk if they could talk together, and without cameras, recorders, notes, or any record of any sort – and not under oath or any kind of authorty? I call that a slap to the face of the U.S.!

    I could go on, but I would hate to muck of Rick’s thread.

    You are welcome to write a paper that refutes THE BIG LIE’s interactive citations page:

    Because it is BS, Brian.

    Really, what would be the point to blow up Tower 7 with a bomb?

    Don’t you think destroying even one of the Twin Towers would be enough?

    I mean, what would be the logic and motivation behind someone doing that?

    I wish the leftists would make up their mind, is Bush a moron or is he a real-life Moriarity?

    This is a perfect example of why the human race is doomed. Too many people believe in conspiracy theories that they see bogeymen around every corner.

    Hitler hated Jews because he thought the First World War was a Jewish conspiracy.

    Stalin slaughtered millions because he saw enemies everywhere.

    Innocents were burned at the stake in Salem because people thought they were conspiring with the Devil.

    This is no different and absolutely pathetic.

    Silly 9/11 Commissioners who said their investigation was a “sham” and “whitewash”!

    They must be conspiracy nuts right, John?

    Interestingly enough, you skipped right over the science of WTC7 because you could not defend it – to get into “what would be the logic and motivation behind someone doing that.”

    That was a quick jump, quicker than most.

    Nonetheless, the question you posed is not for you or I to answer.

    The fact is that fire could not do what you see happen to WTC 7.

    I don’t care if Al Qaeda demolished WTC 7 if that is what an investigation shows, but don’t lie to yourself about how it came down.

    It is too obvious.

    Apparently you decided to ignore the scientific evidence in the links from my previous post.

    Also, just because someone is on a commission doesn’t mean they are the sharpest tool in the shed.

    A large portion of the world’s population believe some stupid conspiracy theory.

    Whether it is 9-11, Obama’s birth certificate, Jewish conspiracy, Kennedy assassination, illuminati, Elvis being alive, the moon landing, water fluoridation, et cetera.

    Congratulations, Brian, you are just one of the many and another reason why the human race is doomed.
