Description

The definitive collection of the highly-political comic book classic of global capitalism, rebellion and exploitation from legends Pat Mills (Marshal Law) and the late, great Carlos Ezquerra (Judge Dredd)! 

Eve is unemployed after leaving university and is immediately conscripted as a soldier working for a corporation and discovers just how South American countries are being exploited to create food needed to feed the increasing population for their profit under the guise of western paternalism.

Written in the late 80s by Pat Mills (Nemesis the Warlock, Slaine) but even more relevant today as the concerns about global capitalism are even more pronounced in the public consciousness.

Carlos (Judge Dredd) Ezquerra’s painted colour artwork is a highlight of his long and distinguished career.

Praise For Third World War: Book One

!Unashamedly polemic in its approach, and touching on everything from environmental politics, to food monopolies, to state surveillance, 3WW pre-empted the obsessions of current online activists by some quarter of a century”
