Shooting War

The 2007 Eisner-nominated webcomic-to-graphic novel written by Anthony Lappé and illustrated by yours truly.

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)

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

A scary-smart take on what the horrors of the future may hold. – Rolling Stone
Fierce, shocking, over-the-top and wickedly smart. – New York Magazine
A must-read. – Entertainment Weekly
An eye-frazzling, mind-warping collage, like a sequence of Banksy murals... The satire is ferocious. – Financial Times
