get your war on, again

Cartoonist David Rees will maneuver across North America to read from his newest collection of political comics, Get Your War On II, from October 13 through October 30.

The New York Times recently described Get Your War On as a “glorious excoriation of our post 9/11 loony bin.” Get Your War On recently described The New York Times as “birdcage liner.”

In the months following 9/11 and Operation Enduring Freedom, Rees went from being a frustrated temp at Martha Stewart Omnimedia to a noted political firebrand with a bestselling anthology, a thriving website, and a regular comic strip in Rolling Stone. In Get Your War On II, printed in his signature red ink, Rees’s deadpan wit and political venom rise to the occasion yet again.

Rees will read from his comics using an overhead transparency projector, answer audience questions, and discuss the land mine removal in Afghanistan that is sponsored by sales of Get Your War On.
