‘Get Your War On’ Returns to Take Aim at Obama’s War

For some members of what the American media calls Generation Y (I prefer Generation Remix), our twenties were made more bearable by the brilliant work of David Rees in Get Your War On. Simultaneously cathartic, depressing and hilarious, the strip composed of clip art and office banter synthesized our thoughts and feelings about the United States’ “War on Terror” in Afghanistan and Iraq. Get Your War On came to a fitting conclusion at the end of the George W. Bush Presidency (after which Rees went to a party), but given the even more toxic political climate of today and President Obama’s vigorous commitment to continued operations in Afghanistan, it seems Rees was compelled to return just when we needed him.

Appearing now in New York magazine, Get Your War On is back with a long-form piece that takes direct aim at the apparent immortality of “Operation Enduring Freedom.” There’s also a nice jab at us comics fans’ expense. Check it and some other preview panels out after the jump.
