Rick Veitch’s ‘The Big Lie’ 9/11 Truth Comic (Interview)

Via We Are Change Atlanta:

As we approach the 10th anniversary of  the September 11th attacks, there still exists an almost complete blackout in mainstream media of the voluminous forensic evidence that demands an immediate and independent new investigation of that fateful day.

Enter The Big Lie a new comic book dealing with the September 11th attacks from the vantage point of a time traveller who has returned on 9/11 to try to warn her husband and avert the catastrophe. We here at We Are Change Atlanta were fortunate enough to be granted an interview with one of the creators, Rick Veitch, who  partnering with other concerned artivists at Truth Be Told Comics promise to continue to ask the big questions and tackle more of the ‘The Big Lies’ of our time with their graphic novels.

We Are Change Atlanta (WACA): First of all I would like to say having read The Big Lie that you have done a great service to our country and to the memory of all the lives lost because of 9/11 by creating this work. Obviously with the 10th anniversary of the attacks of September 11th a little over a month away.  The release of your book is rather timely. What inspired you to create The Big Lie and what would you say are your intentions with this work?

Rick Veitch (RV): Personally, I’m hoping the comic book will find its way into the hands of folks who don’t normally think about these things. The whole event was so traumatic, you can’t blame people for wanting to put it behind them. But there are huge gaps in the official story and we, as a nation, need and deserve answers.

WACA: To my knowledge this is the first comic book to take a critical look at the evidence that calls into question the government’s version of events of 9/11 according to the 9/11 commission report. Did you encounter any resistance in getting this work published or from within the comic community?

RV: No resistance at all. Quite the opposite in fact. Image Comics has been extremely supportive.

WACA: 9/11 is a very sore subject for a lot of Americans, and more often than not, unfavorable conversation. But you’ve done a great job of taking a very sensitive subject and putting a very entertaining and thrilling storyline, while simultaneously educating the audience to the massive issues with the “official conspiracy theory of 9/11″. Did you find it difficult to write? How did you approach the other artists about creating the comic?

RV: Our first attempt was a much more straight propaganda, similar to what Alan Moore and Bill Sienkiewicz did with their Brought To Light book in 1988. Our first draft had a narrator ticking off the facts, page after page. But then we decided a more entertaining approach might work better. So we embedded the information we wanted readers to consider into a drama structured like an old Twilight Zone episode where a person goes back in time to save a loved one and change history. Interestingly, I just read where Stephen King has used the same device for his new book on the Kennedy assassination.

    Well done Rick Veitch! I remember some of his early work…still have it somewhere but can’t remember the title…brutally mocked the superhero genre far more darkly than Watchmen…but lacked the political overtones. He’s come a long way.

      I think you have the sentence backwards, here let me fix it. ** Three words: All of you. Dr. Judy Wood got it wrong. ** There, now it’s more factual.

    What ”voluminous forensic evidence that demands an immediate and independent new investigation”? Try reading the reports from the ones already done.  

    • PHD

      By who… NIST & the 9/11 Commission Report?? I don’t think anyone here is stupid enough to believe that unscientific BS they put out. 

      NIST: “Yes building 7 fell at free fall” “For the first time we show that a building can collapse from office fires”

      There is so much FAIL in those statements it makes all the worlds dead engineers roll in their graves. 

      • Albury

        The world’s live engineers almost universally accept the NIST findings and recommendations, which have resulted in some of the quickest building code revisions in history, but apparently someone here is stupid enough to believe that collapse times indicate the cause of one, and that lower steel-framed buildings haven’t collapsed solely from fire. The 9/11 Commission Report wasn’t intended to be scientific.

          Great, another “Official Conspiracy Theory” troll and a fake Phd trying to convince him he’s wrong.. I swear if you two go at it I’m going to…..  

          Albury, if you actually read the NIST findings you would see it’s riddled with contradictions. So no, engineers  DO NOT universally accept it. I’m not trying to say I believe in all those conspiracies out there, including the one the government told us. I did read the NIST report however and I just think both of you should STFU and argue about it somewhere else. Or we might be inclined to think you are both mentally handicapped.

            Its called pity, even though pidgeons fly upside down over Albury, because he’s not worth shitting on, some people are just nice by nature. By the way, your mum is a lazy shag, and you just fed a troll.

          • Albury Smith

            I’m sure that the NIST engineers will be absolutely devastated to learn that you think their reports are “riddled with contradictions,” Estute, but please feel free to point out some of these alleged contradictions.

          “The world’s live engineers almost universally accept the NIST findings and recommendations,”

          no they dont.

          • Albury Smith

            Search any of your 9/11 “researchers” at the ASCE web site, Robert, and let me know what you come up with. There are plenty of papers there discussing the NIST findings, all essentially in agreement with them and the code recommendations they prompted.
