The best of socially conscious comix for 27 years, World War 3 Illustrated is better than ever!
This issue is jammed with true life tales illustrated by a roll call of legends, with cover art by Peter Kuper and inside covers by Nicole Schulman and Christopher Cardinale. A big 104 pages, 8 of them in full color, WW3 is still only $5.00, and is available in finer book and record stores, or through Top Shelf’s online catalogue.
Edited by Schulman, Cardinale, Seth Tobocman and Rebecca Migdal, the issue features the amazing Kyle Baker, Mumia Abu Jamal, Mac McGill, Fly, James Sherman and Susan Simensky.
The thematic lodestone of this issue is Kuper's journal of life in Oaxaca, penned during the brutal clash there between military police and striking teachers, that claimed the lives of a number of protesters, and of New York IndyMedia journalist Brad Will. Kuper's lush, colorful narrative maintains a deft tension, juxtaposing simmering outrage with shimmering poetics. A WW3 tribute to Will accompanies the piece.
Other "Facts on the Ground" accounts take place in Iraq, New Orleans, Coney Island and El Salvador, and address endless war, the worldwide land grab, lingering apartheid, immigrants' rights and more.
Published by a collective of artists dedicated to battling injustice and institutionalized violence, pens and paintbrushes flaming, World War 3 Illustrated continues a tradition of giving voice to those whose voices have been silenced or drowned out. WW3 is today's antidote to the consensus of denial that cripples the mainstream media's capacity for truth. Don't miss this slammin' new issue!
