World War 3 Illustrated: 33 Years Of Confrontational Comix:
Since 1980 World War 3 illustrated has been addressing personal and political ideas using the medium of comics to illustrate these ideas. The magazine has been an historical document of our history from Reagan to Obama as well as international history. Contributing editors will discuss this history and our magazine’s future with visual presentations and question and answer.
Sun., June 9 - 12pm-1:50pm - Rm W522
Cartooning is a highly effective tool for conveying complex ideas in a widely disseminated format. Avant-garde leftist cartoonists like Peter Kuper (“World War 3 Illustrated”), Ted Rall (“Search and Destroy”), and Stephanie McMillan (“Minimum Security”), utilize the cartoon form to spread propaganda designed to shift the discussion, helping the struggle to save the Earth from ecocidal capitalism. If words won’t be enough to save what’s left of the environment—-try cartoons.
