World War 3 Illustrated is North America’s longest-running anthology of political comics and, for the 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.
