Exclusive Comics Excerpt: ‘Shooting War’



Every week, the Comics Page introduces you to brand-new graphic novels by the world's best artists and writers. Manga, superheroes, indie comix — we'll cover them all as our editors select the best the exploding comics world has to offer.


New York, 2011. Jimmy Burns is just your everyday ordinary Williamsburg-based leftist anticorporate videoblogger, speaking out against the bastards and suits who have been running the long bloody war in Iraq and running America into the ground. When terrorism hits his neighborhood in Brooklyn, though, Jimmy becomes a celebrity — he even lands on the cover of New York! — and can't resist the siren call of journalistic legitimacy. But what happens when he falls in with a brand-new terrorist cell — one run by an opportunistic madman with an eye toward publicity?

Today on the Comics Page, we're proud to present an excerpt from Shooting War, an expansion of the acclaimed Webcomic by Anthony Lappé and Dan Goldman. Fierce, shocking, over-the-top, and wickedly smart, the new and improved book will be published later this month by Grand Central Publishing.
