Edited by Isabella Bannerman, Sabrina Jones and Rebecca Migdal, epilogue by Susan Simensky Bietila
World War 3 Illustrated
By shedding their shame and telling their stories, the contributors to this World War 3 Illustrated volume expose the contradictions of the of the Trump/#MeToo era. In comics that fuse personal testimony with political savvy on topics from healthcare, harassment, childbirth, and assault to everyday sexism, women--from grandmothers to art students--break glass ceilings and pick the shards from their eyes. WW3 veterans are joined by new and international talent in a collection full of outrage, humor, and resistance.
