Celebrate the release of “World War 3 Illustrated” #45 – Before and After


World War 3 Illustrated Facebook page: >>With its latest issue, BEFORE and AFTER, World War 3 Illustrated again devotes an entire issue to comic book stories on a crucial topic: our mortality.

–Comic book stories about death? Not easy material, but World War 3 Illustrated has never set out to gather and anthologize soothing entertainment; rather the magazine’s editors (Peter Kuper, Scott Cunningham for Issue #45) continually strive to serve up illustrated narratives that relate to real concerns beyond the page, issue after issue. It was only a matter of time before the comic book artists and writers of this decades-strong collective focused in on death, Before and After.

Meet the artists behind this notable issue. See and hear comic book stories about death and the lives that go on, often triumphantly, in spite of our universal mortality.

Performing live comic book material at the event: Peter Kuper, Hayley Gold, Sandy Jimenez, Mac McGill, Paula Hewitt Amram, Steven Brodner, Sabrina Jones, Thomas Woodruff, Anthony Freda, Seth Tobocman (featuring music by: Eric Gonzalez Blitz, Andy Laties, Ben Barson, Jenny Gonzalez Blitz, La Femme Natal, and others,) and a special screening of “Death and the Mother,” an animated film by Ruth Lingford
