    1. This was Will Eisner s last graphic novel or book of sequential art in it, he presents the evidence that has debunked the fraud of the racist pamphlet that fueled antisemitism in Europe and later worldwide I d heard about the Protocols but didn t know much about it until I read Eisner s account I knew the racist tract was part of the racist European mindset that led to World War II this easy to understand graphic art telling of the story of the publication, is probably the best way to understand [...]

    2. Will Eisner was one of the most influential graphic artists of the 20th century He pioneered the graphic novel form, and his life partially inspired Michael Chabon s Pulitzer Prize winning novel The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier Clay Sadly, Eisner passed away in January, but not before he finished what might be his finest effort The Plot uncovers the origins of the most infamous and most inflammatory anti Semitic documents of all time Originally published in Russia in 1905, The Protocols have b [...]

    3. I read this book because Umberto Eco mentioned it in a collection of his essays The idea of a leading thinker like Eco writing the introduction to a non fiction graphic novel intrigued me I was not disappointed.Eisner took on the story of The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, deconstructing its origins, and detailing the insidious ends to which it has been utilized I had never heard of this document before reading The Davinci Code It was one of the elements that Dan Brown used to stir people up, [...]

    4. This is the last work of the famous cartoonist Will Eisner What this work is about is no laughing matter and is a tragedy than a comic, as the forward mentioned This graphic novel is about an alleged secret document that supposedly proved a secret agenda and plan by Jewish leaders to take over the world This document, called the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, has been perpetuated for decades by various group of people with varying agendas but whom all unite under the banner of anti Semitism A [...]

    5. Well, that was quick I thought this was going to be my book for tonight, maybe finish it tomorrow Instead, I m writing down some thoughts so I can start a new one and stay up a little longer Still, it was a good read at least as good as a comic book about one of the most insidious plots in the history of the world can be.Obviously, I don t mean the plot of the Protocols themselves I ve known those to be a fake for as long as I ve known they existed The Plot The Secret Story of the Protocols of t [...]

    6. I found this title while reading reviews of The Prague Cemetery Reviewer Michael May noted it as a providing context which makes The Prague Cemetery much enjoyable Wanting information on The Protocols Of The Elders Of Zion, I thought I d give this a try and I m glad I did.This book starts at the beginning when Maurice Joly writes a book intended to incite a revolt against Napoleon III Jump forward 60 or so years, when Joly s forgotten book is used as a template to forge The Protocols of the El [...]

    7. For his last book, comics icon Will Eisner chose to do a non fiction investigative report about a near mythical, centuries old forged document The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, that was designed to implicate the Jews in all manner of nefarious schemes to control the world The story is so fantastic it sounds like fiction, but the ripples the document set in motion in Russia and Germany have had devastating long term effects, and continue to spread poison throughout the world Eisner builds a cl [...]

    8. I m continually reading comics by illustrators who have won the Eisner award, I thought it was about time I read something by Will Eisner Eisner spent roughly 20 years off an on working on this graphic novel His goal was to explain the creation of The Protocols to a general public I think this was a success The Plot is a like a cliffs notes version of the story Generally, I thought the dialog was overly simplified, making it a little silly A Jr High student could read this with no problems.What [...]

    9. THE PLOT The Secret Story of The Protocols of the Elders of Zion 2005 Will Eisner .This edition of this graphic non fiction work by Eisner also contains an introduction by Umberto Eco another author who vows to show that The Protocols were indeed fiction created to slur the Jewish race Eisner has managed to provide the history of The Protocols from their inception in Paris in 1878 up to the present day in graphic form Aside from too much detail in the middle section where he presents line by lin [...]

    10. without much ado, I would recommend this to anybody with at least a pinch of critical thinking in them while I may not be an expert in graphic novel, I thoroughly appreciated this one not only cos it shows the genesis of Protocols or mechanisms by which it is still spread but also cos it reveals, for those who think into depth in this, how thin a line can be between a real document and a document acting as a real one people might still believe it, cos it makes sense or it is possible to themnot [...]

    11. Comic and graphic novel enthusiasts watch with great interest to see who will win the Will Eisner award each year It was my pleasure to meet the creator of The Spirit and the theorist interviewer who taught via his Shop Talk a great collection of conversations between the greats of the graphic storytelling industry My autographed copy of Shop Talk must have been inked while the late Will Eisner was on the verge of finishing The Plot The Secret Story of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion The Plo [...]

    12. Tenho um amigo muito especial, mas dono de uma ingenuidade extrema Ele parece uma pessoa f cil de impressionar e que normalmente acredita em coisas meio incomuns, mesmo quando s o enunciadas de formas pouco convincentes Ele raramente questiona a fonte de uma informa o por mais incoerente que ela seja H alguns anos atr s, veio com um disquete de computador que, segundo disseram a ele, continha um documento de texto com uma articula o judaica para a conquista do mundo Uau De fato, quando abri o ar [...]

    13. Le pape de la BD outre atlantique a d cid de mettre son art au service de la bonne cause Son but est de d noncer l odieux complot visant attiser la haine envers le peuple Juif Ce complot est bas sur la r daction et la publication d un document antis mite Les Protocoles des Sages de Sion Will Eisner nous raconte l histoire de la cr ation de ce document et s interroge sur la fa on dont ce pamphlet, si grossi rement fabriqu , a pu trouver et trouve encore aujourd hui une audience aupr s des plus cr [...]

    14. Then why Why When everyone knows that the Protocols is a fake why are they still publishing it Because it is a weapon of mass deception In his final graphic novel, Eisner makes the history of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion a plagiarized, fraudulent, antisemitic text used by several countries to justify discrimination against the Jewish people accessible to the everyday man It s an excellent history of a slippery text that some still believe is credible If you know someone like that, this wo [...]

    15. This last graphic volume from the influential pen of Will Eisner offers a powerful introduction to the history of The Protocols of the Elders of Zion A primer in the Protocols origins and ongoing cultural significance enhances understanding of antisemitism, study of the Holocaust, and textual roots of intolerance generally Other reviews have shared plenty of detail for readers on , so let me just note that I found it edifying, engaging, and an important use of the author artist s skills.

    16. This should have been a better book, but instead it was very repetitive The book does a great job of showing how The Protocols were originally written by Maurice Joly in France as a rant against Napoleon III, and later plagiarized re purposed by the Russian Secret Police as a document against the communists This could of been a far shorter book Much of the book is given over to complaining about why people still read it and believe it to be true Convincing those people of it s falsehood is not l [...]

    17. N o sendo uma das obras mais significativas de Eisner, destaca se pela forma met dica com o autor desmonta os mitos dos protocolos de si o, meme recorrente que infesta a cultura popular, procurando as suas ra zes nas guerras de poder da r ssia czarista do in cio do s culo XX De certa forma, Eisner certifica aqui a credulidade humana, capaz de acreditar nas piores falsidades mesmo com as mais fortes evid ncias do contr rio.

    18. As anyone who lived under the regime of George W Bush knows, lies sometimes get people killed The lie exposed in this fictionalized treatment of a non fiction subject has been used to justify the killing of millions It is an important story, and it is brilliantly told as a graphic novel by the great Will Eisner This is just one of two graphic novels that I think rates 5 stars Read it.

    19. This is the beating of a LONG dead horse.The problem here is that nobody who gave any credence to the validity of the plot itself would ever pick this book up He was a very smart man yet ignored the fact that invalidating a specific reason for hate doesn t matter to those with long term blind hate They go from reason to reason without consideration and SURELY don t spend time to see how wrong they are It is him proving something that has been proved countless times year after year in mediums tha [...]

    20. Comics giant Will Eisner s last work and first history book, W W Norton s edition of The Plot The Secret Story of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, is worth tracking down.The work, which includes a foreword by Umberto Eco and an historical afterword by Rutgers political science professor Stephen Eric Bronner, is significant less for the story it tells than for the teller and its medium.Published under many titles, The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion purports to outline a plot for worl [...]

    21. Will Eisner s The Plot is the story of the creation and fate of The Protocols of the Elders of Zion , a virulent and chronic piece of anti Semitic propaganda issues towards the end of the 19th century The book is fairly straightforward, charting first the origin of the book that the Protocols was one long paraphrase of and then the life of Mathieu Golovinski, the forger who created the Protocols In covers the history of the Protocols itself, both its use as a tool of anti Semitic propaganda and [...]

    22. There are two ways to look at The Plot the first is as Eisner s intended summary of the scholarly research regarding the history and origins of the forgery that is the Protocols In this case it works, but only sort of It s a than a bit shallow expected, perhaps, given the medium and the fact that a surprising chunk of the work is taken up showing how closely the text of the Protocols was lifted from an earlier French work attacking Louis Napol on concentrating on who created it, rather than the [...]

    23. This is a pretty straightforward account of the real story behind the propaganda pamphlet The Protocols of the Elders of Zion There are a couple of frames where Eisner interjects himself and his point of view into the narrative, and those moments are the strongest It is easy to see why he embarked on this labor of love, which I believe was the last thing he worked on He is clearly afraid that those who do not know history are doomed to repeat it The idea of educating the masses through a comic i [...]

    24. Eisner s debunking of The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, and his look at previous debunkings word choice is worth the quick read this book asks For a non fiction account, it s didactic than entertaining, but interesting nonetheless, in its suggestion that the faux primary text of anti Semitism is remarkably immune to disputation, despite all and repeated evidence not to mention common sense that it s a fake Nice sentence, Nick.Haven t read much of Will Eisner I wonder what his best work is th [...]

    25. The Protocols of the Elders of Zion is an infamous anti Semitic screed that appears and reappears when anti Semitism fires come to flame In this graphic history, Eisner demonstrates who came to write it and when At first, it wasn t against Jews, but the monarchy in France, then Russian spies plagiarized the first book, making it anti Semitic to scare the czar A British newspaper fully discredited it in 1922, but it still gets republished This is no Ms Marvel, Vol 1 No Normal it s not a fun read, [...]

    26. Eisner s undertaking in creating this book is praiseworthy, considering that the Protocols of the Elders of Zion is still used by bigots to justify their bigotry The comic, however, is not without its issues Two dimensions are at odds a documentary one and a narrative one And it s the narrative dimension suffers Admittedly, in this case that s preferable to the alternative, but the results I find somewhat jarring and are among my pet peeves in comics A good deal of the exposition is worked into [...]

    27. Good, even important subject matter in Eisner s final graphic nonel The only problem is that the subject realy doesn t lend itself to a graphic novel The art is beautiful butwell no good subject for the graphic It gets a little hard to follow due to a sort of dullness in the narative I would hope anyone reading this might get an inkling of the damage this piece of propaganda has done over the years, but it may not be conveyed too well here.Still, the art is beautiful.

    28. A very straightforward yet engaging history of the Protocols Eisner created this work so that the truth that the Protocols are forgeries would reach an audience that wouldn t otherwise know that, and it does its job very well, but no than that Straightforward story done with Eisner s fantastic art, nothing , nothing less.

    29. An entertaining and very informative graphic history format account of the continued life of The Protocols of the Elders of Zion , the infamous forged anti semitic screed that has sustained Hatred of the Jews for over a Century The story follow the Document from its inception in Russia in the early 1890s to the authorship by an Okhrana Romanov secret police publicist named Mathieu Golovinski, the publication as found document in Russia in 1905,to its first debunking in 1921 in the London Times B [...]
