Check out the latest contest from the Art of Future Warfare project at the Atlantic Council that will explore the future of urban combat in the coming decades.

The Atlantic Council Art of Future Warfare project’s latest crowd-sourced contest seeks original graphic novel scenes and panels, illustrations and images depicting urban conflict and combat in one of the world’s growing number of megacities during the 2040s and 2050s.

Max Brooks, the best-selling author of World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War and the Harlem Hellfighters graphic novel, will help select the contest winner.

The winner will travel to Washington as a guest of the Atlantic Council to join a June 23 panel event with Max Brooks, Black Powder \\ Red Earth writer Jon Chang and others.

Entries are due in early June.
