This postcard turned up out of the depths of social media a while ago. It was made by Danijel Savović for the CB Prioritaire exhibition way back in the past, but never sent to us. Better late than lost:
This Thursday (Jan 12) we offer a guest exhibition at Hybriden:
The students of the comics course at Malmö Högskola are doing their end exhibition.
Hybriden (Mitt Möllan, Claesgatan 8, Malmö)
Opening Jan 12: 17-21
Open until Jan 15, Fri-Sun 12-15
See Facebook event for more info.
Until January 1 we have a Christmas SALE in our webshop, where you can now buy all of our books, along with Tusen Serier’s and Wormgod’s, at 30% off the regular prices!
Take this chance to make your life (and your collection) complete! Shop the last Christmas presents in our store! MAYBE they’ll even arrive before Christmas (no, they won’t, but still…)!

BLEED: Art exhibition by Tusen Serier
& Release party for CBA vol 35 by CBK
Opening: November 18, 17-22 @ Hybriden (Claesgatan 8, Malmö)
The exhibition will remain until November 28.
Join us as we dive into a red world. Tonight we’ll explore just what it means to BLEED. What does blood mean to you? Are you afraid of it? Do you worship it? Or is it just the color that attracts you?
At Hybriden you will see artists draw blood and see their visual interpretations of the theme.
It will indeed be a red experience. We will overwhelm your senses! Not just by the artwork itself, but the music will be tailored for this night. The wine will be blessed and prepared. Amongst all of this we will have a blood fountain.
The exhibition is accompanied by CBA vol 35: BLEED that includes a wide array of comics on the same theme.
Participating artist in the exhibition are:
Music by Markus Samnell (better known as Feberdröm)
This exhibition is a cooperation between Tusen Serier and CBK, with support from Malmö Kulturstöd.
Here’s a list of exhibitions and releases from CBK/Hybriden, festivals and other events we’ll be attending, basically everything we can think of that will happen dureing the rest of this year:

Bleed exhibition + release of CBAvol35 – Nov 18-28 @ Hybriden
The exhibition will feature bleeding cool art by the CBK crew with friends (such as Vladica Čulić, Merima Dizdarević and possibly more). If all goes as planned, there will also be a fountain of blood (draw your own conclusions), so don’t miss it!

Another opportunity to buy all your Christmas presents from us! With Tusen Serier & Wormgod.
We may also be at Garaget’s bokmässa (Nov 27, but we don’t know yet if we will be there).
And we’re kind of planning a Mellandagsrea at Hybriden, with a Best of Tusen Serier exhibition, but we don’t have any confirmed dates yet.
So now you finally have something to look forward to! A little ray of light in the darkness of winter and dystopia.
CBK, together with Tusen Serier and Wormgod, will be at the Örebro comics festival, November 26-27!
The poster is made by one of the early crew members of CBK and one of the artists of the upcoming CBA vol 35: Bleed, Susanne Johansson (currently part of Wormgod and Tusen Serier and one of the founding members of Dotterbolaget), with some layout assistance from Mattias Elftorp.
Susanne’s exhibition Void (formerly shown at AltCom 2016) will also be presented at the Örebro festival, with prints from the book of the same name.
Here you can find all of Susanne Johansson’s publications currently available in our webshop.
This Sunday, the 25th of September, at 1 pm, one of CBK’s editors, Henrik Rogowski, will present CBK on “Seriescenen” (Showcase A02:40) on Bokmässan in Gothenburg! He will talk about our anthology, editorial staff and vision, but also about comics with more of an artistic approach. See you there!
New volume out in October/November…
You can find the program for the festival here.
One of our contributions will be the release/exhibition for the new CBA vol 34: Re: Creation & Idleness. @ Mitt Möllan, July 28-29, 17-23.
You can pre-order the book here.
It’s time to put on your leisure suit and get to work on whatever. Whatever you want. Whatever. Is it working? No! It’s not working at all. Maybe it’s a sci-fi utopia. Or is it a fantasy? It’s all the time in the world. Odd moments are even. Time is money and everyone’s a billionaire. Spare some time? Here: free time for everyone! High quality time! No work and all play.

CBK organized the first AltCom back in 2004 as a one-time event, then it was turned into a full-scale comics festival and run by the Swedish Comics Association in 2010, 2012 and 2014. And now it’s back with us and Tusen Serier.
There will be exhibitions, films and a comics fair. During all of the festival, we will also give out the AltCom 2016: WORK anthology for free.
The book features an assortment of international artists, many of whom have been published in CBA over the years. Cover illustration by Kinga Dukaj.
Read more about it here.
And of course we will have a table and sell our books at the comics market on July 30-31 in Folkets Park.
On another note, CBA vol 35: BLEED has its submissions deadline on August 1, so if you have an amazing comic with lots of blood lying around, don’t hesitate to send it to us (see our submission guidelines for instructions).
Main editor for this volume: Kinga Dukaj
