Story Description:

Cognito is proud to present, in collaboration with best-selling author Stephen Kinzer, the true life spy thriller, CIA : Operation Ajax. As the value of oil explodes in world markets, global power brokers begin to take interest in the ruling political regimes of the Middle East. In Iran, British agents have controlled oil exports for a generation. The shah is holding on to a shaky peace as a new charismatic leader enters the scene. Secret deals, underground rumors of revolt, and dark plots of government overthrow are employed by American, British, and Persian agents. Iran's oil would flow, by any means necessary. Every actor has a stake in the game. No one can be trusted. Nothing is as it seems.

Learn about the incredible true history of the CIA plot to stage a coup of Iran's government. Recently declassified documents, historic photos, and actual film reels from the era are embedded into the story. See Eisenhower, Churchill, the Dulles brothers, Mossadegh, and the Shah in a whole new light.

A Fantastic piece of Art and Riveting trip into the past

This should be shown in schools! The graphics combined with heavily researched facts make the story more amazing than any fictional spy novel.

With real time footage and serious attention to detail this graphic novel is a page turner! Truly I was blown away to see what the US Govt along with its British allies were willing to do to achieve world dominance at the expense of so many innocent people.

Another great book about the truth in Iran is (Iranian Rappers & Persian Porn) by Jamie Maslin

Thanx Daniel and the Cognito team for getting the truth out to the public and sharing such a wild ride.

Wonderful, Lively Written and Accurate

Just finished it. Brought tears to my eyes, as well as anger, sorrow, depression, excitement, and of course, admiration for the creators, Stephen Kinzer, and the great Prime Minister Dr. Mosaddegh. If you're curious as to how in 1979 Iran turned from a vastly/forcefully modernized country to a fundamentalist anti-American state, you must read this. The world would have been much of a safer and happier place if the U.S. had respected Iran's democracy and her rightful ownership of its oil and hand not pursue the 1953 coup, a.k.a. Op AJAX...

Wonderful Experience That Presents a Sobering Lesson to Humanity

This comic beautifully illustrates a nearly forgotten era of our past...one that haunts our nation like an eerie specter. It is a must-read that contains many valuable lessons for us and our posterity to ponder. The experience of reading this comic brings to life many of the nuances of history that evade our collective memory. Bravo!
