Since seeing David Rees’s presentation at the 2003 Philadelphia 215 Festival, I’ve been anxiously awaiting the release of My New Filing Technique is Unstoppable. Get Your War On gets all the press, but the Filing Technique strips are near and dear to my cubicle-hardened heart. After all, who hasn’t been shut down by The Man after performing an ingenious office feat like Scotch-taping two computers together to make an 80-mile-per-hour super-database?
According to Rees’s website, the book is now available:
A great new book! “My New Filing Technique is Unstoppable” has just been published and it looks great! You can easily find it at the bookstore because it has a bright pink cover. If you’re wondering why you should buy this book when there’s all these free comics on the web site, please note that this book has a lot of new and different comics. It’s even different than the photocopied version I used to make.
And from the book description on Amazon.com:
Now, combining Rees’s trademark gangsta vocabulary with the merciless absurdity (and eerie, quotidian accuracy) of Office Space and an uproariously profane sense of humor, Rees unleashes his volatile energy on a new comic that brings back the foul-mouthed cubicle slaves who starred in Get Your War On to (panel by panel) knock Dilbert on his ass and establish Rees as the Lenny Bruce of clockwatchers.
