The "Big Book Of..." is an Eisner Award-winning series of softcover Graphic Novel anthologies published by DC's Paradox Press imprint. 17 Big Books were published between 1994 and 2000.
Published in 1995 and written by Doug Moench, the Big Book of Conspiracies won the 1996 Eisner Award for Best Anthology. It focuses on plots and cover-ups, including the Watergate scandal, Silkwood, the Iran-Contra scandal, and the assassinations of John F. Kennedy, Malcolm X, Robert Kennedy, and Martin Luther King. This book explores all these schemes and more, using a stream of real and imagined "facts" to explain how shadowy forces — including the CIA, theFreemasons, the Holy See, the Trilateral Commission, and even extraterrestrials — may be conspiring to shape world events.
