  4. worjord:


    Longtime Fantagraphics fanatics may recall that we published a collection of the long-running, politically radical cartooning magazine World War 3 Illustrated back in the day (1989 to be precise). Well the time has come for a new one, and PM Press has taken up the flag and are waving it over at Kickstarter to fund it. These folks aren’t fooling around, and the book will collect 35 years of the best, most trenchant political cartooning from a host of familiar names, such as Spain, Kuper, Bagge, Coe, Romberger, Spiegelman, and dozens more. Go give ‘em some capital!


    Thanks, Fanta! We loved the old anthology and are so happy you were able to bring it to the world! We are so grateful for the support you have given us over the years!

  8. 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.

    Check out the fundraiser page here, and tell your friends! Help us get the word out!

  10. WW3I #45 — Release Event!

    Tuesday, Feb. 25th — 7-9:45pm

    School of Visual Arts Auditorium

    209 East 23rd St. (btw 2nd & 3rd Ave) — Rm. 311

    On Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/events/647985925259442/

    With its latest issue, BEFORE and AFTER, World War 3 Illustrated again devotes an entire issue to comic book stories on a crucial topic: our mortality.

    Comic book stories about death? Not easy material, but World War 3 Illustrated has never set out to gather and anthologize soothing entertainment; rather the magazine’s editors (Peter Kuper, Scott Cunningham for Issue #45) continually strive to serve up illustrated narratives that relate to real concerns beyond the page, issue after issue. It was only a matter of time before the comic book artists and writers of this decades-strong collective focused in on death, Before and After.

    Meet the artists behind this notable issue. See and hear comic book stories about death and the lives that go on, often triumphantly, in spite of our universal mortality.

    Performing live comic book material at the event: Peter Kuper, Hayley Gold, Sandy Jimenez, Paula Hewitt Amram, Steven Brodner, Sabrina Jones, Thomas Woodruff, Anthony Freda, Seth Tobocman (featuring music by: Eric Gonzalez Blitz, Andy Laties, Ben Barson, Jenny Gonzalez Blitz, La Femme Natal, and others,) and a special screening of “Death and the Mother,” an animated film by Ruth Lingford

    Event is FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

  14. TRUTH AND DARE: A Comic Book Curriculum for the End and the Beginning of the World!


    "Truth and Dare" is a comic book and a curriculum, a graphic novel and a gateway to further knowledge and action. With fifty pages of illustrations from nine different world-class artists, and a ten page curriculum and resource list, it is a crash course in world history, political economy, sociology, gender studies, ecology, climate change and the world-wide ecosocialist struggle for humanity and nature in the 21st century. We imagine this book in all settings and with all age groups, from elementary schools through universities; and outside the classroom, in homes, workplaces, grassroots organizations and beyond. It is produced by Ecosocialist Horizons with help from the World War Three artists collective.
