PHILADELPHIA: The daring secret mission to get Osama bin Laden by elite US forces will be told in the pages of a new graphic novel that aims to shed more light — with a bit of creative license — on the event.

Written by retired US Marine Capt Dale Dye and Julia Dye, the 88-page hardcover "Code Word: Geronimo' ' takes a look at the mission that is free from politics , a move the authors said was aimed at keeping the focus on those who planned, conducted and executed the raid. IDW Publishing said a portion of the proceeds from the sale of the book will be donated to the American Veterans Center. "People from all parties and from more than one administration made this all possible,'' Julia Dye said. "It's an American celebration.''

It was also a quick process adapting the real-life event for the book, illustrated by artists Gerry Kissell and Amin Amat, and set for release Sept. 6, less than a week before the 10th anniversary of the Sept 11, 2001, attacks.

IDW, a San Diego-based publisher known for its line of comics that include "GI Joe,'' "Star Trek' ' and " Doctor Who,'' said the story about bin Laden's capture would appeal to both new and established readers.
