Awhile back, I posted about a fantastic web comic called “Shooting War”. It is political satire at its finest, combining an entertaining story and compelling characters with a created future based on today’s world of strife in the Middle East, global warming, and increasing corporate power.
I found the web comic to be can’t-put-this-down reading. Recently I heard that the authors were releasing a hardcover book version, and the west coast release party was held here in San Francisco over the weekend. If you haven’t read the web comic version, or if you did read it and you loved it, I highly recommend picking up a copy of their hardcover. It’s currently on my reading table next to the also-fabulous Regards from Serbia, another politically-oriented book of comics and short letters.
I continue to be fascinated by the use of accessible media such as these for expressing political ideas. These two books are fantastic examples of why I feel this way.
You can find the “Shooting War” book on amazon here.
