Since October 9, 2001, when David Rees posted eight comic strips on his website and called it
Get Your War On, tens of millions of people have been entertained and horrified by his clip-arty office workers and their vociferous and profane commentary on the so-called War on Terror. From the first few days of Operation Enduring Freedom to the overhyped pseudo-success of the surge years of fear, bewilderment, violence, and deathRees has succeeded in depicting a country of grieving, angry, and confused citizens, feeling hatred forand hatred ofthe world beyond our shores.
Get Your War On is a kaleidoscopic cavalcade of emotions and moods, including (but not limited to) despair, enraged bewilderment, grief (with a touch of loathing), ecstatic contempt, disgust, and nihilistic exhilaration. This definitive edition of
Get Your War On combines strips from the first two publications with sixty-five percent new material created in the last three years."
