1st printing. Written by Anthony Lappé. Art by Dan Goldman. This "scary-smart" graphic novel is a bold, irreverent, unflinching satire of network news, the war in Iraq, and the burgeoning "citizen journalist" movement. Set in the near-future, Jimmy Burns has just seen a Starbucks in New York destroyed in a terrorist attack. The footage he records on his video-blog camera makes him an instant celebrity, and Burns goes on a journey into the heart of Iraq's civil war in search of answers. But what he finds is a nightmare of paranoia, chaos, and destruction. Grounded into today's headlines, Shooting War was serialized online, and is presented here complete for the first time. Hardcover, 8 1/2-in. x 9-in., full color. Cover price $21.99.
