Coloring Outside The Lines

“We Shall Never Forget 9/11: The Kids’ Book of Freedom,” was just released by Wayne Bell, publisher of Really Big Coloring Books Inc. in St. Louis. It begins with big graphic black-and-white drawings of bin Laden plotting the 9/11 attacks, then shows the burning towers, the hunt for bin Laden, and ends with a Navy SEAL shooting bin Laden as he hides behind a woman in Islamic garb.

According to the publisher, the book’s initial print run of 10,000 copies has already sold out.

I've been doing it all wrong. Here I've been trying to sell comic books when the real money is in coloring books. Zen Coloring Books next to the Highlights in every dentist's office in America!! Never Forget!!!

Zen Comix, we hear you! Hello. My name is N.P. Clearly, lone voice here from the netherworld of indie creator-produced comics. I'm the author of The 9-11 Comic Book, a 32-page graphic novel -- not to be confused with the coloring book. I wrote my book a year ago still haunted by the narrow escape of loved ones during Sept. 11. The artist and I worked hard to produce a factual book with integrity, and we're grateful for all the stars we've gotten from readers. Yes, it's stylized and the narrator is a grumpy Angel of Death -- but that's it, available as a digital download on Thanks from League of Notions. press release linked.
