In the weeks leading to August 2014, twelve cartoonists and graphic artists responded as if in real time to the events that happened across the world one hundred years ago, as the world was heading to war.

Artists included Steve Bell (Guardian), Peter Brookes (The Times), Steven Camley (Glasgow Herald), Kate Charlesworth (The Cartoon History of Time), Achim Greser & Heribert Lenz (Frankfurter Allegemeine), John McCrea & Ferg Handley (Marvel/Lucasfilm & Marvel/Commando), Jon McNaught (Dockwood), Woodrow Phoenix (Rumble Strip), Zoom Rockman (The Zoom!), Posy Simmonds (Tamara Drewe), Ralph Steadman (New Statesman), and Alan Cowsill & Lalit Kumar Sharma  (The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, Marvel).

 

The original works were exhibited at The Cartoon Museum beside the exhibition Never Again – The First World War in Cartoon and Comic Art (11 June-19 October 2014).

Co-commissioned by 14-18 NOW and The Cartoon Museum in association with BBC Radio 4.
