A comic book about the trial Bradley Manning, the U.S. Army private facing 22 charges for providing classified material to WikiLeaks, is being created from the courtroom by a WikiLeaks activist.

Scheduled for release in October by OR Books, Clark Stoeckley’s The United States vs PFC Bradley Manning: A Graphic Account from Inside the Courtroom combines illustrations of the topics being discussed with actual trial transcripts.

“No other sketch artists are coming to the trial here in Fort Meade regularly. I’m here all the time,” Stoeckley tells The Raw Story. “I want to record every single witness and create a visual record of what’s going on so that people can put faces to transcripts. I’m trying to capture the atmosphere in the courtroom and the characters who are part of the story … I’m doing this in a style that’s never been used in courtroom sketch art.”
