The radical comics collective World War 3 Illustrated is back and this time Shameless Feminists are wielding the pens.

By shedding their shame and telling their stories, the contributors to this World War 3 Illustrated volume expose the contradictions 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.

Isabella Bannerman started out painting backdrops and props for Pee Wee’s Playhouse. She continued working in the field of animation, directing station identification spots for MTV, and working on the TV show Doug. Her cartoons have been in many publications, including Glamour, New York Times, The Funny Times, and World War 3 Illustrated. Isabella has been writing and drawing the Monday comic for the internationally syndicated comic strip Six Chix since 2000.
