In the Shadow of No Towers In the Shadow of No Towers
is a 2004 work of comics by American cartoonist Art Spiegelman
. It is about Spiegelman's reaction to the September 11 attacks
on the World Trade Center in 2001. It was originally serialized as a comic strip in the German newspaper Die Zeit
from 2002 until 2004, and was collected as an oversized board book
in 2004 with early American comic strips as supplementary material.
It also has many references to Spiegelman's Maus
comics, for example one in which Art said that the smoke in Manhattan smelled just like Vladek said the smoke in the concentration camps smelled. Also he often turns himself into a mouse on the fly.
It was published by the German newspaper Die Zeit
after Spiegelman was unable to secure publication in any major American outlet. In Britain, excerpts were published in The Independent
. The comic was serialised in full in the London Review of Books
from March-September 2003. A segment also appeared in 2004 as part of the Actus Tragicus
comics album Dead Herring Comics
