“Bradley Manning, who released hundreds of thousands of diplomatic cables and classified army reports to Wikileaks in 2010, is facing court-martial at Fort Meade on twenty-two offenses, including aiding the enemy. The trial, which began on June 3, is closed to cameras and recording equipment, so except for the efforts of a handful of observers in the courtroom, it’s hard for those of us outside to follow along.

One of those observers, Wikileaks activist Clark Stoeckley, aims to rectify that problem by producing a graphic novel of the entire proceedings.


The book, The United States vs. Pfc. Bradley Manning: A Graphic Account from Inside the Courtroom, will be published by OR Books as a print-on-demand title upon the trial’s completion this fall. (OR Books also published Wikileaks founder Julian Assange’s manifesto, Cypherpunks.) In a first, those who pre-order the book will receive weekly emails with drawings and notes from the trial so they can stay abreast of developments.”
