You Back the Attack! We'll Bomb Who We Want!: Remixed War Propaganda Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

You Back the Attack! is the brainchild of U.S. Airborne Ranger turned dissident comic book artist Micah Wright. Stunning, hilarious, and politically incendiary, this full-color poster book reworks classic American World War I and II propaganda into commentaries on war, peace, and patriotism for the post-September 11 era. The forty one-sided posters make fun of war mentality, the Bush White House, Homeland Security, the War on Terror, Ashcroft, the 2000 Presidential election, the military-industrial complex, and much more. Forty posters of yesteryear such as Uncle Sam's "I Want You," and "Loose Lips Sink Ships" are reworked with new messages of peace and protest.

Review:

"The antiwar contingent will read these and weep, rather than laugh." Publishers Weekly

Book News Annotation:

One of the posters in this collection features a young blond woman sitting at a typewriter and saluting, but the original World War II era text urging typists to be productive for the war effort has been changed to read, "You write what you're told! Thanks, corporate news! We couldn't control the people without you. (A message from the Ministry of Homeland Security)." This and 39 other "remixed" World War II propaganda posters comprise the heart of this book, essentially a warning about creeping totalitarianism and warmongering in the United States. Each poster is accompanied by a commentary by the Center for Constitutional Rights discussing the issues raised. The original posters are reproduced in an appendix. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

The Emmy-nominated writer for Nicktoons' "The Angry Beavers" presents this collection of provocative political posters from World War I and World War II that have been reworked for the post-9/11 era and skewer the war mentality, the Bush White House, and the War on Terror. 40 full-color posters.

Synopsis:

This stunning, hilarious, and politically incendiary full-color poster book by U.S. Airborne Ranger-turned-dissident-comic-book-artist Micah Wright reworks classic American World War I and II propaganda into biting commentaries on war and pariotism for the post-September 11 era.

About the Author

After four years spent invading other countries as an Airborne Ranger in the U.S. Army, Micah Wright moved on to the next logical step in his career: writing children's animation. He created the first true American anime show, Constant Payne, his homage to the pulp novels of yesteryear, and his writing for Nicktoons' The Angry Beavers was nominated for an Emmy and an Annie award. Co-creator of the acclaimed Chet Thunderhead: Private Eye animated series, Wright currently writes StormWatch: Team Achilles, a blood-and-guts vision of human special forces soldiers who do battle with out-of-control superheroes and the sinister Military-Corporate Complex that creates these supersoldiers gone mad.
