No reason to dwell on the ones that I did not like or I was indifferent to.

What I found was an amazing collection of comics and other art about the events of 9-11.

I also signed a book of condolence, but we all know how practically useful _that_ is.

Format: Paperback
Some of the works in this collection are quite good...I especially enjoyed Will Eisner's contribution ("Give me real, people!") and the single panel work of a woman touching the other side of her half empty bed. That was an excellent demonstration on how subtlety can have a much greater impact than a sledgehammer.
By contrast, there's the story written by Stan Lee ("The Sleeping Giant" I believe it's called) which uses a simple animal metaphor to retell 9/11 past, present and possible future. It starts out interesting but never elaborates on 9/11, only simplies it and assumes we can't figure things out for ourselves (such as the terrorist mice wearing "666" T-shirts).
Most of the stories were in between the ones I mentioned. Sometimes the tales are clever and subtle, but usually there's just a small bit of creativity per story.
Granted, I don't think I'm the target audience of this book. If you're looking for stories of hope after the attacks, you might enjoy this book more than I did.

Format: Paperback
To be honest, I have not been in any rush to purchase any books that deal with September 11, 2001, or its aftermath. In bookstores and news stands, I have quickly passed by with little more than a cursory glance at the cover photo(s). However, this one caught my attention. Superman, the Man of Steel, standing in front of a mural of America's current heroes: firemen, policemen, doctors, construction workers, EMTs, and business men and women. I had to pick it up. I'm glad I did.
What I found was an amazing collection of comics and other art about the events of 9-11. This volume is broken up into three sections: Nightmares, Heroes, and Recollections. All the works are amazingly well-done. Each has a different color, tone, and message, but all are touching. I spent a good couple hours just looking at these stories, with my heart pounding and tears streaming down my face. No, these are not real photos, but the fear, anger, and all the other emotions that I and others felt on that day all came flooding back through the colorful stories presented here.
For those people, like me, who may have difficulty with that time still, or who just don't want to read one of the thousands of books and stories out there, this might be a good choice for you. At times it's light, presenting children's dreams of superheroes and real heroes. At times it's harsh, dealing with bias, hatred, and America's internal struggles with "what's an appropriate response?" But above-all, it's a wonderful collection of amazing work that will allow you to remember the heroes of that time, along with the goodness that began to surface in our nation after the fact.

6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Amazon Customer HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on January 18, 2004
Format: Paperback
"9-11: September 11, 2001: The World's Finest Comic Book Writers and Artists Tell Stories to Remember" collects original stories and illustrations from many of the top writers and artists from DC Comics, including Wildstorm, VERTIGO, and "MAD" magazine. But in addition to the likes of and Dan Jurgens, Neal Adams, Jim Lee, Neil Gaiman, Jose Luis Garcia-Lopze, Sergio Aragones, and Joe Kubert, you will also find contributions by Will Eisner, Stan Lee, Richard Corben, and Michael Moorcock. Unfortunately, the book's subtitle echoes badly, because even thought DC had a comic book entitled "World's Finest," which featured Superman and Batman team-ups for the most part, using that phrase to describe your own writers and artists on the same cover where Superman is impressed by those who were heroes on September 11th misses the obvious reason not to toot your own horn.
The volume is divided into section entitled Nightmare, Heroes, Recollections, Unity, and Dreams, which provide a rough thematic organization to the stories. There are stories dealing with what actually happened, such as James Denning and Guy Davis' "Walk," Josh Krach, Scott McDaniel James Pascoe's "The Job." and Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti's "Silver Linings in a Big Dust Cloud"), as well as stories that address the line between comic books and the real world created by 9-11 (e.g., "Unreal," "For Art's Sake" and "If Only"), while a few actually work DC superheroes into the story (e.g., "This, Too, Shall Pass" and Gaiman's "Endless" story, "The Wheel").

Format: Paperback
Sometimes moving, sometimes grating and sometimes just a good story this book's all-over-the-place nature is the reason for only 3 stars. I cannot argue with the cause, but a good cause does not always make for a good story.

Favorites? "Unreal" by Steven Seagle, "Tradition" by Paul Levitz, "A Tale of Two Americans" by Ben Raab and the untitled inside back cover featuring Batman and his famous roses that he leaves on the spot where his parents were murdered.

No reason to dwell on the ones that I did not like or I was indifferent to.
