My New Fighting Technique is Unstoppableby David Rees
Welcome to the world of clip-art karate, outrageous trash talk, and cartoon characters as you've never seen them before. The New Fighting Technique may have sprung from the crucible of cubicle cultureRees created the strip while working a deathly boring temp job, harnessing the potential energy of his PowerPoint software, Internet connection, laser printer, and vast expanses of fallow hours into this Unstoppable ass-kicking phenomenonbut the result has less to do with clockwatching than with the explosive energy of freestyling gangsta rap, airborne Bruce Lee maneuvers, and a profane, deadpan sense of humor that just may establish David Rees as the Lenny Bruce of our times.
As soon as Rees began faxing MNFTIU comics to friends, those friends were faxing it to friends who were faxing it to more friends. It was the birth of a genuine underground publishing sensation. Soon it was a regular serial, then there was merchandise, then a website that received 25 million hits last year.
Author Biography: David Rees is the author of the cult-hit comic book Get Your War On, all royalties for which he donated to the Adopt-a-Minefield charity. He draws a clip-art comic that appears in every issue of Rolling Stone, plays in the band the Skeleton Killers, and works the occasional temp job.

I hope you add this book to your Christmas list! This is a very funny book for anyone with even a little bit of a sence of humor. There is profanity, so I would scratch this off any minors Christmas list. But for that hard to find guy, this comic book is perfect!
You will definitely laugh 'til your sides hurt and your funny bone goes numb from overuse! Although it contains much profanity, that is a big part of the humor in this comic book. You will enjoy it as much as I did, if you have that 'off-center' sense of humor.
If there ever was a book that defined the cliché, 'You have to see it to believe it,' My New Fighting Technique Is Unstoppable (MNFTIU) is it. How do you describe comics that have a character called Karate Snoopy (yes, of Peanuts fame), a dude with bricks on his head, a guy that is simply a circulatory system, and someone called 'Normal Man'? Exactly. Ya can't! If you like adult swim on cartoon network, you are going to love, my new fighting technique is unstoppable. Kick your sarcasm into high gear and enjoy a good laugh on me.
