World War 3 Illustrated: The World We Are Fighting For

October 24, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm EDT


World War 3 Illustrated is an American comics anthology magazine with a left-wing political focus, founded in 1979 by New York City comic book artists Peter Kuper and Seth Tobocman, and painter Christof Kohlhofer, and subsequently produced by a collective with a rotating editorship. For their 51st edition, World War 3 Illustrated asked their artists and writers to bring heart and vision to two questions: What do we really care about? and what are we fighting for?

Their comic strips and panels are cheerful or angry, prescriptive, or absurd. There is both humor and strong imagery. Some artists bring a roadmap for change. Others simply tell us what their values are, who their loved ones are, what they are clinging to, and holding on to in the struggle to exist. Some lean into the mysterious, the poetic, the unfinished, or the unknowable.

This book is really all about the “how” and the “why.” Artists tell us about their personal experience of activism, whether it’s direct action, voting, or just talking with people. With Rebecca Migdal, Jackie Lima, Nere Kapiteni, Deb Lucke, Seth Tobocman, Peter Kuper and Sandy Jimenez
