The grimly gleerful yeah, that's his work Tom Tomorrow comments a decade later with cheerily repurposed s clip art, and Art Spiegelman and others see the connection to oil behind all the sword-, gun- and flag-waving.
It's also good to see photos of the artwork produced for New York's anti-war march. Sabrina Jones recounts travel in Israel, but Peter Kuper visited repeatedly, the first time with his parents at age The artists struggle with the contradictions of a "promised land" with which they have a personal connection, and its visibly abusive treatment of Palestinians.
The "Autobiology" section contains self-referential comics, manifesting the feminist affirmation "the personal is political". This is the territory that was explored in the s by Melissa Gebbie, in the s by Aline Kominsky, and since then by Alison Bechdel and Phoebe Gloeckner whose "Diary of a Teenage Girl" was recently made into a feature film that debuted at this year's Sundance.
World War 3 Illustrated: 1979-2014
One powerful autobiography is a comment on Globalism; Carlo Quispe's tale of a Salvadorean immigrant whose life stress actually bursts out of the comic's panels. Reflecting the contradictory reception the comics medium in America, "Sunshine State" recounts Peter Kuper's testimony at the trial of Mike Diana, prosecuted for obscenity in Florida for publishing a puerile comic book about Jesus Christ. I thought about this case following the murder of the Charlie Hebdo staff in Paris in January The most recent--and perhaps most optimistic--section in the book documents the festive artwork created for Occupy Wall Street, and Susan Simensky Bietla shows protesting crowds of educators and working people massed in the Wisconsin state house.
My criticisms of the book are of things that should have been corrected in reprinting these comics and stories. Gregory Benton's AM is the prisoner's own tale, well-drawn but sadly diminished by muddy colors; I wish PM Press' production staff had cranked up the colors' brightness and tweaked the contrast to make Benton's art more readable. In the "Promised Land" section, Eric Drooker tells of a mural project in Palestine in whose painting he participated, led by muralist Susan Greene--not Green--of the Break the Silence project.
Since this artist has prominent public works in Oakland and environs, PM Press really should have caught Drooker's typo. And it's a shame they didn't catch Robert Desmond's allusion to "Boris Batinov," a misspelling of Boris Badenov, in an early issue. But it's because Comics still fights for legitimacy at least in MY university Art department that publications like World War 3 Illustrated should be most attentive to details like these.

Kuper and Tobocman would probably shrug and say, "Hey, we're comics artists, bro, not proofreaders. This is history, man, and even in an elegant year chunk between hard covers, it's hot off the presses.
