Trial becomes comic


Published: Monday 30 November -0001

imageAcomic book about the trial of Bradley Manning, the US Army private facing 22 charges for providing classified material to WikiLeaks, is being created from the courtroom.

The United States vs PFC Bradley Manning: A Graphic Account from Inside the Courtroom by Clark Stoeckley, a WikiLeaks activist, combines illustrations of the topics being discussed with actual trial transcripts. Since the trial of the US soldier for leaking hundreds of thousands of classified digital files began on June 3, Stoeckley has already drawn images of Manning at the defence table, and of Adrian Lamo, the former computer hacker who turned Manning in.

The comic is scheduled for release in October.
