"Can I see pictures of the actual demining team being sponsored by GYWO?" Yes, another Get Your War On post, but this time to spotlight the benefit work the incredible success of the comic has enabled.

If you hate "Get Your War On," but still want to help rid the world of landmines, you're encouraged to donate directly to Adopt-A-Minefield. Thanks!

Wow, just like princess Di or something.

Seriously though, I have to admire what this guy is doing, and it something that really benefits people directly. I would have used the money to soup up my Toyota Tercell.

AAM: Ah-ha! Is there a lot of swearing in the comic?

Hahaha. That's great. I also think its pretty admirable that he's giving the profits away. He's far from a wealthy man; according to the NYT's article about him from before he comes off as a broke temp worker.

That's genius. I wasn't going to buy a copy til I saw those cute landmine photos. But his danged payment system only takes Visa and Discover.

Hello, I'm trying to buy my mom a birthday gift here!

What's with the tone of that's guy's writing? And the pointless swearing? He makes it all seem like a joke. I guess that's the way the hip humanitarian kids are writing today.

Maybe I missed the back-story on this, cause I never heard of him before.
