EDITOR’S REMARKS

Based on a true story, CIA: Operation Ajax redefines the experience of reading a graphic novel by including interactive sound and animations. It’s also preloaded with notes, photos, and historical documents that offer you more background on the story as you read. Which is why we think that there is great potential to use this format in education as a tool to get kids actively interested in history. Unfortunately, at $7.99, it’s pricier than traditional digital comics. Bit at the end of the day, CIA: Operation Ajax isn’t just a digital comic book for the iPad, it’s the future of comics.
