In the Shadow of No Towers

I found myself looking through Art Spiegelman's In the Shadow of No Towers the yesterday.  It is a very nice tribute to the event without reducing the event to a maudlin commemoration as we have seen over the years.  Spiegelman combines pathos and humor in the best tradition.  Often it seems you can convey a greater sense of an event such as this through graphics than you can through words.  I'm sure he would be raked over the coals by "The Five" today.
