Return To Normal Comic

A Rare Modern Age James Sturm Comics Books.

Return to Normal

2002. As a reaction to the events of September 11, 2001, Comics Creator James Sturm created the comic 'Return to Normal'. In the comic, Sturm stated that people should "return to normal" and not aim their vengeance to all Arab Americans. The comic was intended for educational purposes and does not have any words with the pictures. Public School teachers have used this book in classrooms, asking students to write a narrative based upon the series of pictures contained in this pamphlet. The stories the students came up with were very revealing in addressing their reaction to September 11 and stereotypes that they harbor.
