Web Comic: Get Your War On
A panel from one of the strips, with added Censor Box
An incomprehensibly bitter, angry, profane, surreal and hilarious political Web Comic
by David Rees, composed entirely of clip-art and with the general emphasis being on the bubble text, which tends to come out as something like an Author Filibuster
. It actually started under the title "Crumbly Comics" and chiefly dealt with the vagaries of corporate life/office work. These early, mostly apolitical strips are collected in the book My New Filing Technique is Unstoppable
, a phrase which also gives Rees' site its URL, http://mnftiu.cc
. The comic covered events from shortly after 9/11 to just after the end of the George W. Bush
presidency, generally reflecting Rees' appalled and incensed reaction to much of the doings of the United States
in this period
, with the characters (such as they are - nobody is ever named) frequently expressing incredulity and generally acting as if they are trapped in their own personal hell
. To say the series wore its bias on its sleeve would be a significant understatement.
Rees has recently started a Sequel Series
called Get Your Censor On
, whose target is corporate attempts to censor and/or control the internet.
