    1. This starts out really interestingly, and makes the valid point early on that not all Muslim extremists are, you know, brown people. (The main guy is a white dude). Also not all of 'em are extreme. At least not from their perspective from their perspective they are being reasonable and they are justified in their violence. I mean, I think I already understood this but a lot of people who villify the Taliban and groups like that, really don't get it. I'm not saying they don't DO evil things butwe [...]


    2. Young Adult Fiction inspired by the experiences of John Walker Lindh and the Columbine shootings, this fictional exploration tells the story of a young martyr-in-training. Originally from New Jersey, John Sendel narrates the story as he's about to die in an American bombing run in Afghanistan. In a flashback we see Johnny in the early '90s with a nowhere job, no girlfriend, an abusive, profane ex-military father, and a remote, drug-dependent mom. He's is failing life until a fellow employee show [...]


    3. This graphic novel is loosely based on the life of John Walker Lindh, a.k.a. "the American Taliban." It's OK, but not particularly insightful or illuminating. After reading it, I didn't feel as if I had any better understanding of why a confused, friendless young American raised without religion might feel drawn to radical Islam. By changing a few details, this story could just as easily have been called Johnny Cult Member or Johnny Neo-Nazi. Maybe that's the point, but it's not a particularly i [...]


    4. A graphic novel,based on the story of American Taliban ,John Walker Lindh. The fictional protaganist ,John Sendel ,is recruited and eventually radicalised by a fundamentalist group in the US. He eventually ends up a spy for the CIA in Afghanistan. Some interesting facts about the US policy in Afghansitan and the Middle East are woven into the narrative ,and the stark black and white artwork supports the story well. If you enjoyed this,you might like Art Spiegelman's Maus, and Alan Moore's Brough [...]


    5. Gripping and authentic representations of how a horribly abused child finds acceptance into an Islamic terrorist group, and his eventual disillusionment with them and with America as well. In his cynical eyes, America is no better than her enemies. Some speculate that this is an attempt to explain John Walker Lindh, but I was unaware that he came from a nightmarish background like the protagonist here. If not, the comparison does not stand.


    6. I was a bit more impressed with the artwork than the actual story. The American Jihad is an interesting concept to base a story around, but I guess I was hoping for either a more developed story or a more accurate biography.It's worth reading though, especially for the artwork.


    7. At first I found the font really annoying. I also felt as though I would have enjoyed it more if it were a short story (many times the images used seemed to just echo the text as opposed to work/mesh with it). Eventually I got into the story and the image thing didn't bother me too much.


    8. Crudely drawn and with an apparently unfinished narrative, this tale of a young man drawn to jihad is weak countersplain to the John walker Lindh saga. It has some energy and great potential, but overall not a work you'd ever miss reading.
