Description

Chapters 1-3 are FREE to download!

Experience the most interactive graphic novel on a tablet, called “one of the coolest media experiences that I’ve seen on the iPad” in the New York Times!

Operation Ajax is a graphic retelling of the 1953 CIA-sponsored coup in Iran, letting you dive in to history like never before with revolutionary interactive enhancements to the traditional graphic novel experience.

Inspired by author Stephen Kinzer’s investigative journalism and his bestselling account of the coup, Operation Ajax is a riveting story that examines the facts and mystery behind today’s political conflicts in the Middle East and America’s modern discord with Iran.

Follow a covert CIA operative– based on the identities of real agents whose names were redacted from leaked CIA records- as he recalls the dramatic real-life historical events involving heads of state, covert agents, hired thugs, and revolutionary political activists.

The fun of reading comics and the allure of accessing an actual coup plan -which was controversially leaked to the New York Times in 2000- come together in this cool and engaging iPad story.

"What's amazing about this graphic novel is that it's got so many layers. You can just see the story. You can dig down deeper and see the actual CIA documents. You can identify with people in it. And you can learn about a fledgeling democracy." Amy Goodman

“The stuff they are doing with digital comics is pretty exciting with moving panels and methods of visual storytelling that play with time and space in the panel, influencing how you read and experience the story… You’re in control of how the story plays out. That’s a power a lot of the motion comics out there don’t grant the reader.” Mark L. Miller, Ain’t It Cool News

“Cognito's Operation Ajax is one of a number of enhanced comic apps coming to market, but is the first that uses the technological capabilities of the iPad to expand the functionalities of a non-fiction story.” Milton Griepp, ICV2

“The format provides an opportunity to make supplementary material such as photos and documents available within the relevant comics panel. It’s different from anything I’ve seen in digital comics.” Anthony Ha, Venturebeat/The New York Times

“Cognito Comics is a tremendously exciting development in the graphic novel and literacy worlds, especially for teachers.” Dr. Katie Monin, Professor of Literacy, University of North Florida
