Hate Yer State #2 by Corey Bechelli
Whatâ€™s the best way to review a book of political comics? If you figure that out let me know, as I have no idea. Thereâ€™s some pretty funny stuff in here if this is your political persuasion (â€thisâ€ being mostly that GW Bush and Republicans in general are shitbags, while Democrats are mostly worthless), but if this isnâ€™t your thing, well, itâ€™s not going to do a whole lot for you. Thereâ€™s also a slight problem with the fact that political strips are incredibly topical, so that even though this book was done in 2006, as I sit here in 2007 (as somebody who pays a lot of attention to politics, sadly), there are plenty of faces in various strips that were a mystery to me. Possibly if I read them the week they came out it would make perfect sense, but a year removed I have no idea who were committing the outrages of the week. Still, some funny and disturbing stuff in here, and call me an eternal optimist, but I have to imagine that most people out there who pay attention to this stuff at all are more or less in line with his political viewsâ€¦
