This is not just another anti-Bush tirade. Differing from other political fare, Uncle Dubya's Jihad Jamboree is a visual and informative diatribe on Bush's "War on Terror." It's "toons" and commentary are a hard hitting, incisive, comical perspective of how one leader has merchandised terrorism for his own political gain. These "graphic chronicles" are a collection of humorous essays and illustrative political cartoons that took four years to complete the critical transformational years of "one nation under God" to "one empire under Dubya" as it grew like a tumor throughout 2000-2004.
Similar in mission to Robert Outcault's infamous comic "Yellow Kid" of the early 1900s, Callari and Pittman's "Kidd Millennium" is the graphic focal point for the socially and politically conscious of the 2000s. With over 80 full-page toons (more than half in resonant full color), the book is a legacy, a collectors' art book, an historic archive, and a footnote to posterity all in one. These toons are lessons to be learned by young and old alike (it's great for teaching students of any age, any nation, the foibles of modern government and the often tragic character flaws of leadership). Now that the flag waving and the national trauma that were September 11th's initial legacy have subsided, the Machiavellian maneuverings of a U.S. administration out of control have emerged. Lest we fall down the same spider hole of Saddam or of the Russians in their reactionary return to a police state mentality, Americans must fight for their civil liberties, and against the propaganda machine of totalitarian governments by always keeping leaders like Bush in check.
Kidd Millennium in "Uncle Dubya's Jihad Jamboree" is the chronicler of the crucial period of our nation's short history, from the stolen election of 2000 right up to the political brainwashing of the election of 2004, and includes every political event that has catapulted Bush into his very own crazed state of jihad.
Kidd Millennium records the life and times of our nefarious, self-appointed, and self-initiating "commander-in-chief" and his self-absorbed, self-righteous engagement to rid the world of whatever he next deems "evil," as like Moses of old, his arms and staff are held high by his very own Republican Guard.
