Get Your War On

Get Your War On, Web site review by
Erica Sagrans
If you’re tired of all the euphemisms and rhetoric of the war
against terrorism, look no further than David Rees’ ‘Get Your
War On’
online comic. The strip chronicles a group of
disillusioned office workers venting in profanity-filled phone
calls about their lives and our nation’s involvement with multiple
wars. Though intended for a small audience, in its first two weeks
online ‘Get Your War On’ received more than 5 million hits; in
April it was written up in the New York Times, and it now has a
compilation book on the way. Though the comic was born out of Rees’
own post-9/11 depression (‘I feel like this strip will be valuable
only if it expresses how bad I’m feeling,’ he says), for many
others it has been a source of amusement, truth, and snickers in an
otherwise-bleak year.
