Get Your War On II includes more than 150 new comics. Get Your War On II will collect the comics that Rees has contributed to Rolling Stone, along with never-before-published comics appearing for the first time in this book.
Rees, who was named one of USA Today’s 100 Most Interesting People in 2003 and has been the subject of profiles in, among many others, The New York Times, Newsweek, and Rolling Stone, gained a cult following in 2002 with his controversial comic Get Your War On.
Get Your War On started as an Internet phenomenon, garnering millions of hits per day, and when originally collected as a book, became a BookSense national bestseller, a Los Angeles Times bestseller, and a Boston Globe bestseller. It has been a bona fide underground publishing sensation since its creation soon after September 11. Get Your War On highlighted the absurdity of current events by translating them into the foul-mouthed ravings of a bunch of clip-art middle-management office drones, making readers laugh while raising their consciousness about the state of the world.
Get Your War On has been called the most daring and intelligent response to the War on Terrorism, and Rees has become a noted political firebrand and humorist. In Get Your War On II, Rees will tackle administration policy, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, weapons of mass destruction, Bush’s Mars mission plans, the State of the Union address, the 2004 election, and more. And he’ll do it all with his trademark deadpan wit and through the seemingly innocuous cubicle jockeys who have won him legions of fans worldwide, and praise from coast to coast.
