After buying Darth Tater (the Darth Vader Mr. Potato Head) and trekking to Comic-Con, you embraced your inner nerd.
You always knew sci-fi was the wave of the future.
To wit: Shooting War, the highly anticipated graphic novel (big comic book, in layman’s terms) by Anthony Lappé and Dan Goldman.
The story (adapted from a Web comic) takes place in an eerily recognizable future. Videoblogger Jimmy Burns is streaming live when a Starbucks is blown up. The footage lands him the media stardom he’s been waiting for.
Alongside commentary on celebrity, terrorism, and the blogerati are snapshots of New York media (New York columns, irreverent Dan Rather quotes, Post headlines). The visuals brilliantly blend digital illustration, photography, painting, and collage.
And the book will fit nicely between your copy of The Shadow and Superman #423: Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow.
Available online at amazon.com or at your local bookstore.
