About the Author
David Rees is the author of the cult-hit comic book Get Your War On, all royalties for which he donated to the Adopt-a-Minefield charity. He draws a clip-art comic that appears in every issue of Rolling Stone, plays in the band the Skeleton Killers, and works the occasional temp job.

David Rees draws clip art comics for Rolling Stones magazine, plays in a band, and works temp jobs where he finds his inspiration for his comics. MNFTIU is based on the clip arts he collected while working at a university community health department. This is where he found Karate Snoopy, Circulatory Man, and the ambulance drivers. The fixation with fighting and technique which is mentioned over and over again is from Rees' fascination with rap music. His characters are like rappers when they freestyle (rap). Rappers battle each other with the skillfulness of their words. The one with the best "fighting technique" emerges victorious.
This is a fun book to read if you do so with an open mind. If you're expecting to read it like Calvin & Hobbes or The Peanuts then you'll be disappointed. If you like South Park or even The Simpsons, there's a good chance MNFTIU will appeal to you. You can find samples of Rees' MNFTIU at [...] He also has other works such as "Get Your War On" which can be viewed at [...] All the royalties from this book are donated to the Adopt a Landmine charity dedicated to landmine clearance in Afghanistan. So even if you don't like his comics, you have to appreciate his contributions.
The humor is definatly insane and off the wall. The fact that he reuses images for completly different scenes, or vise versa reuses dialog with completey different images is just great stuff. You can always check out a handfull of the strips at [...] to see if your humor matches the books. It did for me.
Also check out My New Filing System is Unstoppable too.
His book, "My New Fighting Technique is Unstoppable" (or MNFTIU for those in the know), chronicles the adventures of a group of martial arts fiends -- they can't wait to fight one another -- with strange names and stranger powers. Egging each other on with profane taunts full of teenage bravado, they fight to show each other the inside of ambulances.
These comics can't be explained; they are so out-of-this-world, much like Gary Larsen's "Far Side". Knowing that they were made with clipart makes it all the more hilarious.

This book is hysterical. However, it is only fair for me to point out that almost every other person I have shown it to does NOT agree with me.Read more
