it was ok
bookshelves: comics, politics, history
Read in December, 2008 , read count: 1

Not a fan of this book, entirely because I felt the writing was ham-handed overall and I didn't find the artwork appealing (and I usually like stencil/graffiti-inspired stuff). I'm very much sympathetic to the book's general view on the handling of the Iraq war, collusion of the media, and interest in grassroots media, but liberally sprinkling the dialog and imagery with anti- McDonald's and Starbucks references just made me feel like I was reading a lesser bit of agitprop from Adbusters.
