Shooting War

Anthony Lappé
Dan Goldman

The global war on terror rages out of control. The president pops Prozac. And the #1 selling videogame in 2011 America is the terrorist-simulator, Infidel Massacre: Los Angeles. On the streets of Brooklyn, videoblogger Jimmy Burns' latest anti-corporate rant is cut short by a terrorist bombing of a Starbucks - but his live feed isn't.

 

When his dramatic footage is uploaded by Global News and rebroadcast across the planet, the obscure blogger becomes an overnight media sensation. The next thing he knows he's on a Black Hawk helicopter inbound for Baghdad, working for the same mainstream media monster he once loathed. Burns dream of becoming a war correspondent turns into his personal nightmare as he nearly loses his mind in the paranoia, chaos, and destruction of the spiraling Iraqi civil war in this bold, irreverent, unflinching satire of network news, war, and the burgeoning 'citizen journalism' movement.

 

The original webcomic was brilliant and the much-expanded hardback version last year was my favourite graphic novel of 2007 - brilliant and very contemporary storytelling with superb artwork mixing drawn art and real photos of Iraq, drawing on the author's own time as a journalist reporting from the war zone.
