The Unspeakable - JFK Comix

Michael Hogan Notes: 

For every comic book you see on shelves, there are dozens of ideas, proposals and half-finished creations that never see the full light of day. Red Light Properties writer/artist Dan Goldman recently showed off one such project on his Flickr account, an adaptation of James Douglas’ popular 2007 nonfiction book JFK & The Unspeakable: How He Died and Why It Matters, praised by filmmaker Oliver Stone as the “best account” of the assassination of President Kennedy.

Goldman was in talks to adapt the work alongside writer Seth Jacobson, but sadly the project never got beyond the cover and six pages created by Goldman and Jacobson.

Of course the comic book as a medium for conspiracy in the Kennedy murder is not without precedent.
In 1977 Jay Kinney and Paul Mavrides produced Cover-Up Lowdown:
