If you’re unfamilar with David Rees’ hilarious comic strip, Get Your War On, then check out his vast archive of biting Clip Art satires that lay into, among other things, the War on Drugs, the War on Terror, Dubbya, McCain, Obamania et al. Now there’s an animated version – set to appear on 236.com each week. If this taster is anything to go by, the trademark simplicity and tone of Rees’ ilustrations has been maintained while the dialogue is as razor sharp as in his original three-frame strips. Thanks to Coudal’s blog for the link.
