Abstract
This essay examines three graphic narratives – Spiegelman’s In the Shadow of No Towers, Rehr’s Tribeca Sunset, and Torres’s American Widow – as individual responses to the events of September 11, and, more importantly, to the dominant reconstructions that emerged in the ensuing months. The depersonalization of the event – inevitable in the (re)presentation of a limited set of images – is countered by those presented in the graphic narrative. These authors re‐appropriate sometimes iconic images to speak of their own experiences of 9/11 and its aftermath. In the interplay of images and text (and the blank spaces between) meanings multiply.
