Image Comics, one of the largest comic book publishers in the United States, is known for series like Spawn, The Walking Dead, and Savage Dragon. Now they are adding a controversial new title to their pantheon: a 9/11 Truther comic called The Big Lie.
Written by Rick Veitch and Gary Erskine, The Big Lie revolves around a particle physicist who travels back in time to warn her husband, who died on September 11.
USA Today describes the plot:
She rushes to his office at a risk-management consulting agency, but since she has aged 10 years, Carl can't quite accept that it's her. And even though she brings evidence on her iPad, neither her spouse nor his co-workers believe her warnings.
"The meat of the story is her trying to convince these 'experts' that the terrorist attack is about to happen," Veitch says. "So it's essentially a taut emotional drama with the facts and questions surrounding 9/11 sewed into it."
Veitch tells USA Today that he didn't consider himself a Truther, but says that he's skeptical of any “official” version of events provided by the government.
