Planting bin Laden Under Your Christmas Tree

The saga of this country’s grisly, decadelong search for Osama bin Laden has been transcribed into graphic novel form — making “Killing Geronimo” the must-have holiday gift for everyone from wide-eyed youngsters to gray-haired history buffs. And it comes out just in time to complement “Zero Dark Thirty,” Director Kathryn Bigelow’s much-anticipated film treatment of the hunt for the terrorist mastermind.

The book, which was penned by co-authors Darren G. Davis and Jerome Maida and illustrated by Stefano Cardoselli, recounts the aftermath of the Sep. 11, 2001, attacks, beginning with President George W. Bush’s marshaling of U.S. resources to destroy al-Qaida’s once-clandestine network right until the expletive-filled end of bin Laden’s sad, reclusive existence:

Each page reflects incredibly patriotic tones, with panels featuring terrorist activities bathed in blood-red hues, key discussions and statements framed in bubbles of pristine white, while U.S. leaders shine bright blue:

Davis, who is also publisher of supporting Bluewater Productions, said the project took more than a year to complete and includes input from anonymous military personnel who presumably had operational knowledge of the extensive manhunt.  The bibliography, meanwhile, cites sources ranging from CNN and the History Channel to “The View” and the National Enquirer.

“Killing Geronimo: The Hunt for Osama bin Laden” is available now via Barnes & Noble and Amazon.
