WW 3…A wonderful book for friends who dig graphics and peace.

World War 3 Illustrated 1979-2014

Edited by Peter Kuper and Seth Tobocman, introduction by Bill Ayers $29.95 pmpress.org

Founded in 1979 by Peter Kuper and Seth Tobocman, World War 3 Illustrated is a collective of artist-activists working in the political comics mode, and this book amounts to what you trust will be a midcareer survey of its work thus far. More than a dozen fantastic artists, including Sue Coe, Eric Drooker and Sandy Jimenez, take us, in graphic sequences composed of shadow and light, from the 1980s culture wars to the war in Iraq, from the Reagan White House to Zuccotti Park and Tahrir Square. This is history recorded with a scathing precision. Morality meets hilarity. You find yourself shocked that you’re laughing. – Holland Cotter
