Henry Jenkins has written a perceptive review of In the Shadow of No Towers and Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow, arguing that both works "want to bring us back to the future. Sky Captain uses state of the art digital technologies to reconstruct the popular American imagination, circa 1939; No Towers tells a personal narrative of September 11 through iconography drawn primarily from early twentieth century comic strips. No Towers makes explicit what Sky Captain leaves implicit—the idea that we are returning to images from the past to cope with our uncertainty about the future."
