Today the planet is a hot mess! A train wreck! A forest fire! A breached dam! A nuclear reactor that could melt down at any second! A massacre! And the problem is that these are not metaphors.

There are over thirty wars going on in the world today, with new ones starting all the time. Added to this human insanity is the reality of climate change and looming mass extinctions. 

A lasting peace can only be obtained through addressing the historic injustices created by centuries of capitalism, racism, imperialism, sexism, gender discrimination, and colonialism. Only justice will give us peace. World War 3 NOW? is our anthology of comics, art, poetry, and writing by creative people from Ukraine, the United States, Brazil, Puerto Rico, Russia, Palestine, Italy, Israel, Peru, and other countries. Through this collection we attempt to produce a composite picture of the planet at this critical moment.
