Shooting War by Anthony Lappe and Dan Goldman

Shooting War: The New Graphic Novel (trailer) from SMITHmag on Vimeo.

An atmospheric graphic novel set in the present future (May 2011) with an all too realistic take on the war in Iraq. A perfect match for fans of Brian Wood's DMZ, the story features indie left-wing blogger Jimmy Burns as an embedded journalist working in Baghdad for Global News, an "extreme news" network. Dan Goldman's illustrations combine photography, vector illustration, and digital painting, lending stark reality to the story. Don't miss the Shooting War website for extras. Grade 9+
