The Plot: The Secret Story of The Protocols of the Elders of Zion
|The Plot: The Secret Story of The Protocols of the Elders of Zion|
The Plot: The Secret Story of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion is a graphic novel by American cartoonist Will Eisner released in 2005.
The book tells of the antisemitic conspiracy behind the falsified work Protocols of the Elders of Zion, written by the Russian-French writer Mathieu Golovinski in 1905. Eisner was inspired to write it when a few years before his death in 2005 he learned Radio Islam was broadcasting the Protocols.
In Eye Magazine, Steve Heller praised Eisner for taking on the subject, but criticized the work's "ham-fisted, curiously naïve methodology", exaggerated faces and gestures, and the grey wash artwork. Nicholas Lezard in The Guardian found the wash "a dramatic instrument".
