THE PLOT: THE SECRET STORY OF “THE PROTOCOLS OF THE ELDERS OF ZION” HC – B&W. (Will Eisner) The Protocols of the Elders of Zion is a book written one hundred years ago. It has been represented over the decades as a blue print for Jewish world domination. In truth, though, it has long been exposed as an utter fraud. Eisner takes on the whole history of the wretched book and once again pushes the medium for all its worth. 100 pgs.

“A work more disturbing than fiction from “the father of graphic novels” (New York Times)

“The ultimate illustration of how absurdly comical and cancerous The Protocols has been to mankind.”-Thane Rosenbaum, Los Angeles Times Book Review

The Plot, which examines the astonishing conspiracy and the fabrication of The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, has become a worldwide phenomenon since its hardcover publication, taught in classrooms around the globe. Purported to be the actual blueprints by Jewish leaders to take over the world, the Protocols, first published in 1902, have become gospel truth to international millions. Presenting a pageant of historical figures from nineteenth-century Russia to today’s ideologues, including Tsar Nicholas II, Henry Ford, and Adolf Hitler, Will Eisner unravels and dispels one of the most devastating hoaxes of the twentieth century.

This graphic book about the history of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion is excellent from two different perspectives. First, the artistry and overall production values are outstanding. Of course, everyone knows that Mr. Eisner was a genius. Secondly, the information about the history of the protocols is fascinating. One review I read stated that the world didn’t need another book of this nature, that the fact that the protocols are spurious is well documented. I guess I knew that, but I did not know the actual history before. I found it absolutely amazing, both in the motivation of the original forgers, along with the fact that the document apparently continues to surface. So this book can be another voice crying out in the wilderness, so to speak, revealing the facts of the matter. I enjoyed this very much and highly recommend it both to history buffs and fans of Mr. Eisner’s graphic work.
