5.0 out of 5 stars Rees is brilliant, May 21, 2004

This review is from: My New Filing Technique is Unstoppable (Paperback)
Though Rees is better known for his Get Your War On comic, his wit and creativity are at their best in the Filing Technique series. Part of Rees' shtick is using public domain clipart instead of drawing the strips himself. And this tacky office clipart-you know, the blurry black and white pictures of office workers in plaid jackets talking on the phone-is a big part of the humor. There's something funny about dowdy office staff spewing obscenities.
You probably already know many of the characters in your own life-most of Rees' trash-talking clipart people are familiar enough to make part of you laugh in recognition and part of you consider hara-kiri. The clipart device also works well because Rees treats the pictures literally and builds absurd stories around them. Two women in front of a filing cabinet have intense and profane conversations about filing techniques; co-workers gathered around a workstation are business trainees who use the "spy computer" to learn about office politics; a shadowy man with a stack of dot-matrix printouts contemplates stealing the paperwork to start his own company.
So take a cubicle break and visit a world where management can drop a Triangle Body Mode at any time or can bring in Dr. Niles Fanderbiles to make sure your filing system is in the Realm of Excellence.
