Within days of the murder of President John F. Kennedy, Lyndon B. Johnson appointed a seven-member commission to investigate the assassination. In its report, the Warren Commission determined that there was “no credible evidence” conflicting with its conclusion of a lone gunman, a statement that was immediately subject to intense public scrutiny that, an incredible five decades later, has not subsided.

In time for the 50th anniversary of the presentation of the report to President Johnson on September 27, 1964, The Warren Commission Reportuses the comics medium to provide a unique means of testing the commission’s claim, using graphic storytelling techniques to unravel competing narratives and make plain how decisions taken in the days that followed the events in Dallas shaped the way those events would be reconstructed by the commission.
