HBO’s Watchmen has been a show exposed critical but under-served parts of American history to the forefront. Now, the show has created a comic to go with it.
In the Watchmen series premiere, writer and showrunner Damon Lindelof helped dramatize the 1921 raid on Black Wall Street in Tulsa. Many viewers were completely ignorant of the events covered; we could not believe that a bi-plane swooped down and firebombed the streets of a U.S. city.
While I thought elements of this set piece had to be fabrications, it turned out it was all true.
Now, in an effort to educate people on the things our history books in school tend to leave out, The Atlantic, along with HBO, have teamed together to create a comic book helping people understand what happened on those fateful days in 1921.
