David Rees never holds back in this profane, bold, hilarious, and very knowledgeable series of comic strips drawn between 2001 and 2008. He skewers everyone and everything, though he focuses mostly on the Bush Administration and its disastrous domestic and foreign policies. Expect appearances by Voltron, Iraqi crybaby theater, and more as the clip-art office staff exchanges phone calls and discussons over donuts and coffee about the state of our messed-up world.
No holds barred!

I've had PART ONE of this collection since it was first published, and re-read it all the time, startlingly dismayed at how relevant it has remained since a few days after 9/11. I recently purchased the combined, updated version and it's all amazingly, heartbreakingly funny, poignant and revealing. David Rees can read inside our true hearts with shocking, hilarious clarity. Stupendously FUNNY.

Format: Paperback
first of all, it is beyond irrelevant to criticize d. rees for lacking insight into the root causes of the u.s.'s failed policies in the "war on terror" -- in case it hasn't been advertised correctly, let me clarify: this is a book of political COMICS. rees aims his sharp and hilarious barbs at the personalities, ludicrous marketing, and horrific consequences of the bush-cheney-rumsfeld-wolfowitz-neocon warmongering of the "pre-emptive doctrine" type. his take is not the policy wonk's reasoned analysis, but the bewildered and outraged citizen's stupified i-have-to-laugh-or-else-i'd-cry variety. and lest we forget, these comics are clever, original, stylish in an anti-style kinda way, and, like the best comedy, both angry and funny at once because they get at truths that are difficult to approach or digest in conventional political discussion.

and if you dig these, be sure to check out his early work, particularly the absurdist hilarity of "my new filing technique is unstoppable" (which applies the over-the-top tropes of kung-fu flicks to ordinary paper-pushing office life -- like "Dilbert" if it were edgy, original and FUNNY.)

This guy is pretty damn funny. I kept up with his comic on his website over the last five years, and I'm glad to have a hard copy now.
