Decided to go back and re-read these for the first time in several years and they're still as powerful/hilarious/depressing/relevant as ever. One of my favorite comic strips ever.
This book is like drinking the blood of a small child whose parents killed your ancestors. My heart weeps.
A series of strips in which office workers rant to each other about bin Laden, anthrax, suicide bombers, Enron, the war on terror, and the suspect motivation and methods of the post-9/11 American government.The strips begin in October 2001 and run for about a year. At first they're all AMERICA YEAH!1!! ("If there's one thing I love to see, it's a huge f***in' SUV tooling through midtown Manhattan with an American flag flying half-mast on its antenna! What could be less French?!") By the second h...
Voltron is in this book, what more do u need to know?
Something just told me it was time to read this one again. Can't imagine what...(Original review from LibraryThing, December 2, 2012):If you want to know exactly how we all felt after the 9/11 attacks, read this book. I remember reading the strips when they were first posted online, and it was comforting to know all my confusing thoughts were not singularly my experience.The way language was used in those days (much as it still is today), was meant to either psych us up for the coming war or psy...
These were hilarious. Probably dated now.
One of the few voices that made sense of things back then, and could admit to the horror and the absurdity of it all.
No sooner had I finished the Complete Get Your War On than I turned right back around and used its opening section as a referent for another reading of this initial publication, the first year more or less of Rees' howl of rage. Nothing terrible was done to the strips to repurpose them for the complete collection: the broader space allowed for some other framing of the clip art around the dialog, occasionally (and mostly early on?) an interlocutor was changed. Mostly what vanishes from this volu...
Funny and awful at the same time.
some of the funniest comics ever.
Made me cackle. When it wasn't freaking me out a little.
Some of the funniest shit I have ever read in my life. And politically spot-on.
oh, 2003, those dark, dark times.
These very funny cartoons examine post-9/11 fear and anxiety. Very biting humor. Hilarious.

I thought I loved this guy's stuff at first, but it got old really fast.
