World War 3 Illustrated

World War 3 Illustrated is an annual anthology of political comics and a political arts collective with a 40 year history. We started in 1979 as a response to the rise of Ronald Reagan, and have continued as an all volunteer, democratically managed magazine ever since. In the 1980s and 90s we were one of the first publications to take up the cause of the Lower East Side Squatters Movement, Move and Mumia Abu Jamal. We started to address issues of police brutality and gentrification in 1983 and have continued to this day. Our current issue comes out in the middle of the world wide pandemic. 

The World We Are Fighting For
(Current Issue)

This has been an explosive year. It is a good time to ask: What do we really care about? What are we fighting for? For our fifty-first edition, artists and writers were asked to bring heart and vision to this question. The comics in this edition range from cheerful to angry, from prescriptive to absurd, employing both humor and strong imagery. Some are roadmaps for change. Others simply tell us what the artists’ values are and what they hold dear in an era of climate chaos, social polarization, and political authoritarianism.
