Manning Trial To Become Comic Book

A comic of the Bradley Manning trial, produced live from the courtroom, is being created by artist and WikiLeaks activist Clark Stoeckley and will be published in the autumn. Stoeckley, who drives a truck covered with the WikiLeaks logo to the court in Fort Meade each day, said: “It [the truck] definitely turns heads. My feeling is that if they allow the Fox News truck on base they have to allow me here too, right?” He is meticulously recording every detail of Manning’s trial from inside the courtroom, drawing and writing down events as they happen. The comic, “The United States vs PFC Bradley Manning: A Graphic Account from Inside the Courtroom,” will include drawings of events that illustrate the matters under discussion in the courtroom – for example, the war in Afghanistan – as well as text from the trial transcript.
