Shooting War


Shooting War

Nominated for Eisner Award for Best Digital Comic (2007)

The global war on terror is raging out of control. The president is popping Prozac. And the #1 selling video game in America is the terrorist-simulator Infidel Massacre: Los Angeles. On the streets of gentrified Brooklyn, videoblogger Jimmy Burns' latest anti-corporate rant is cut short by a terrorist bombing of a Starbucks... but his live feed isn't.

"A scathing near-future satire of the Iraqi occupation that rings with eerie plausibility... The bleak prognostications are cut with black humor and a penchant for explosions that keep the narrative moving." – Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Fierce, shocking, over-the-top and wickedly smart" – New York Magazine

"An eye-frazzling, mind-warping collage, like a sequence of Banksy murals... The satire is ferocious." – Financial Times

"The light-handed but searing satire of SHOOTING WAR is taking the Sunday comic strip places it never could have gone before." – Julian Dibbell, The Village Voice

"Scary smart." – Rolling Stone

"A must-read" – Entertainment Weekly
