Third World War is the latest collection from The Treasury Of British Comics – collection some rescanned classics!
It’s no exaggeration to call this one of the best GNs you’ll read in 2020 – Third World War from the pages of Crisis. If there’s one comic book that speaks to the anger and frustrations of our times, it’s this…
Eve is unemployed after leaving university and is immediately conscripted into Freeaid’s peace force, where she discovers just how the people of South American countries are being exploited by the global corporations who secretly fund Freeaid – all under the guise of Western paternalism.
Powerful, prescient and action-packed, Third World War is the politically charged masterpiece from two of the greatest creators in the history of comics, Pat Mills (Marshal Law, Sláine) and Carlos Ezquerra (Judge Dredd, Preacher).

‘Third World War’ is suffused with economic, political, and social issues, and deals with ever-moreprescient issues around capitalism and global politics. Ezquerra’s painted colour artwork is a highlight of his long and distinguished career. A truly anti-establishment graphic novel from the late 1980s, this is unlike anything else published by the Treasury of British Comics so far!
