World War 3 Illustrated 1979–2014
This is big!
With PM Press, we’re publishing a full-color retrospective exhibition of the magazine that’s 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 three decades, and they’re just getting warmed up!
But in order to make this happen, we need you to support our Kickstarter campaign and help bring this book into reality!
The book will be available in stores this spring, but we’re asking readers to stake a claim in its publication now. Why? Everyone knows that the publishing industry is going through hard times due to the closing of many brick and mortar book stores. PM Press is a small publisher, founded by people with years of experience in the alternative press. They are taking the courageous step of publishing the WW3 anthology as a gorgeous hardcover, 320-page book. They’re risking a large amount of money to print the anthology and to show you the work of these artists like you’ve never seen it before.
Buying the book in advance or offering support through other pledges will help PM Press with the enormous printing and freight bills as well as ensure the book is widely distributed and publicized through every available channel.
Right now all of the artwork has been prepped, the text proofed, and the book has been designed. The digital file of the book is finished and sitting at the printers. All that is needed is to raise the money and the presses will roll.
Making sure that all of this succeeds is a dedicated team that combines the experienced folks at PM with the World War 3 editorial board, who have been publishing North America’s foremost political comics magazine for 35 years.
WW3 is giving away collectible back issues as a reward for those making contributions to the Kickstarter. PM Press is offering a variety of books, T-shirts, and related merch. And WW3 artists are making both original art and limited edition prints available to those making larger donations.
