World War 3 Illustrated

Radical Comix from the Heart of the City


World War 3 Illustrated is an annual comic book and graphics magazine. 


Founded in 1979, by Seth Tobocman and Peter Kuper, World War 3 Illustrated was among the first American magazines to treat comics as a medium for serious social commentary and journalism. WW3 isn't about a war that might happen. It's about wars ongoing-- wars across the globe and in our own neighborhood, the wars we wage against each other and with ourselves.


For 40 years, the magazine has been a labor of love, run by a volunteer collective of political activists and artists, both first-timers and established professionals. We're based in New York City and provide a home for comics from around the world.


Over the years, our editorial board has included...
Isabella Bannerman, Sandy Jimenez, Sabrina Jones, Scott Cunningham, Kevin Pyle, Rebecca Migdal, Nicole Schulman, Eric Drooker, Susan Wilmarth, Christopher Cardinale, Ryan Inzana, Paula Hewitt Amram, Chuck Sperry, Ethan Heitner, Hilary Allison, Jordan Worley and many others.
