Get your war on

Acerbic - like hydrochloric acid is acerbic. That is the only way to describe these cartoons. Rees started producing his cartoon strips shortly after 9/11 and puts them out via his website. Rees documents the anxieties of American society and savages the politics of the Bush administration. His strips are all set inside the office of a nameless corporation and feature stiffs in suits making personal phone-calls to each other. This is not satire for the squeamish, and the politics sometimes jarred with me. Still Rees's work is very much a reflection of the insecure and unequal world we live in.
