The U.S.-sponsored 1953 overthrow of Iran’s democratically elected government is one of the most important and tragic world events of the 20th century, and the effects of this are still being felt today in the Israel+U.S. vs. Iran standoff. My friend Daniel Burwen’s studio Cognito Comics  has developed an interactive iPad graphic novel entitled CIA: Operation Ajax, inspired by Stephen Kinzer’s All the Shah’s Men: An American Coup and the Roots of Middle East Terror. Get CIA: Operation Ajax now for free for a limited time! It’s an educational and visually stunning work of art!
