1604869585 Brand New; satisfaction guaranteed. Founded in 1979 by Seth Tobocman and Peter Kuper, World War 3 Illustrated is a labor of love run by a collective of artists (both first-timers and established professionals) and political activists working with the unified goal of creating a home for political comics, graphics, and stirring personal stories. Their confrontational comics shine a little reality on the fantasy world of the American kleptocracy, and have inspired the developing popularity and recognition of comics as a respected art form. This full-color retrospective exhibition is arranged thematically, including housing rights, feminism, environmental issues, religion, police brutality, globalization, and depictions of conflicts from the Middle East to the Midwest. World War 3 Illustrated isn?t about a war that may happen; it?s about the ongoing wars being waged around the world and on our very own doorsteps. World War 3 Illustrated also illuminates the war we wage on each other?and sometimes the one taking place in our own minds. World War 3 artists have been covering the topics that matter for over 30 years, and they?re just getting warmed up. Contributors include Sue Coe, Eric Drooker, Fly, Sandy Jimenez, Sabrina Jones, Peter Kuper, Mac McGill, Kevin Pyle, Spain Rodriguez, Nicole Schulman, Seth Tobocman, Susan Willmarth, and dozens more. Praise: ?World War 3 Illustrated is the real thing. . . . As always it mixes newcomers and veterans, emphasizes content over style (but has plenty of style), keeps that content accessible and critical, and pays its printers and distributors but no one else. If it had nothing more than that kind of dedication to recommend it, it would be invaluable. But it has much, much more.? ?New York Times ?Reading WW3 is both a cleansing and an enraging experience. The graphics remind us how very serious the problems and how vile the institutions that cause them really are.? ?Utne Reader ?Powerful graphic art and comic strips from the engaged and enraged pens of urban artists. The subjects include poverty, war, homelessness and drugs; it?s a poke in the eye from the dark side of America, tempered by what the artists describe as their ?oppositional optimism.?? ?Whole Earth Review ?This is art?not marketing?on the newsstand. It represents the sort of creativity too rarely given an outlet in comics. It?s the best and longest running alternative comics anthology around.? ?Comics Journal ?The artists of World War 3 have forged a space by turns harsh and exciting, honest and rowdy, boisterous and straight-forward, always powered by the wild and unruly harmonies of love. It?s a space where hope and history rhyme, where joy and justice meet. Their voices provoke and soothe and energize. I want to hear more.? ?Bill Ayers, founder of the Weather Underground
