We have a special summer offer from now until the end of july!
We really need new members (i.e subscribers). You might say we’re a bit desperate, even. It’s a long story. So now you can become a member (which means that you subscribe to CBA and get 4 issues delivered to your home, wherever you live) for one year at half the normal* price!
It only costs 160sek (Sweden) / 24eur (Europe) / 32usd (rest of the world) if you order your membership now!

It’s half the former price. After this special offer expires the normal price will be a bit cheaper than it used to be.
* Disclaimer 2:
This offer is only valid for new members. Renewal will cost the same as the future normal price.
But never mind all these confusing details now. Just jump on the special offer train and enjoy the ride! You’re never gonna regret this and you’re gonna get som many great comics sent to your mailbox irregularly all over the year. Yaay!
Release exhibition for
CBA vol 33:
by Julia Scott
Add to cart
Opening: May 14, 17-20 @ Biograf Panora (Friisgatan 19, Malmö)
The exhibition will remain until June 8.
Everyone wants to feel connected to something bigger than themselves. When it comes to millennial ennui, however, things get complicated. Living the very American dichotomy of privilege and trouble, more often than not we gravitate towards anti-heroes and villains to break us out of our daily grind. But at what point do the troublemakers of American pop culture start resembling it’s youth more than the heroes? Diary essays paired with familiar faces create a dream landscape mirroring the millennial adolescent psyche.
CBA vol 33:REPEAT OFFENDERS is Julia Scott’s solo debut about growing up weird, growing up other, and taking courage from the seemingly innocuous cartoon villains that populated the childhood of a generation.
Julia Scott is an American working artist based out of the very raucous Baltimore, Maryland. Some of her clients include Warner Bros, Archaia Entertainment, and Lion Forge Comics. She draws the comic The Telepath Generation with writers Josh Tierney and Bobby Myers, and considers herself an animated pop culture connoisseur.
The exhibition is supported by Malmö Kulturstöd.
The weekend is coming towards us like some kind of train. We will have a table at SIS16 (May 7-8 at Kulturhuset in Stockholm). As usual, we’ll be with Tusen Serier & Wormgod + Anna Ehrlemark (one of the artists of the brand new CBA vol 32).
You will find us in the same place as last year (F8-F10). We also take part in the programming, with a talk about Hybriden & AltCom on Saturday at 13.
See the entire program here
We will of course bring our latest issue and an assortment of back issues that we will sell with some generous special offers (look us up to find out more)!
And speaking of festival, now there’s a Facebook event (and poster) for AltCom!
The Hybrid and Seriefest present Seriefestfesten!
This weekend (Sat-Sun) we will be at Seriefest at the Malmö City Library. We’ll be sharing a table with Tusen Serier and Wormgod (as usual).
Then, on Saturday evening, starting at 18, we invite you to the official Seriefestfesten (Comicspartyparty) at The Hybrid, our comics store/library/exhibition space at Mitt Möllan (Claesgatan 8, Malmö). Fest!
Seriefest may be over for the day, but the night is still young. Come and hang out with us, see the ongoing comics exhibition and of course you can buy lots and lots of comics in our store if that’s the way you prefer to spend your evening. We won’t mind.
Bring your own booze or have a taste of our exhibition wine. We’ll bring some snacks and sodas.
Naturally, you are also very welcome even if you have had nothing to do with Seriefest during the day, but we recommend a visit at the zine fest as well.
Friday, April 29, 18-22 @ The Hybrid (Mitt Möllan, Claesgatan 8, Malmö):
Release party & exhibition for the all-new CBA vol 32: BLUE BEGINNINGS!
Add to cart
Blue isn’t just a color. Mostly you’d associate it with depression, moodiness, full moons and break-ups. But, have you ever spent a cloudy afternoon on an old jetty by the sea, staring into the depths? Watching the intricate patterns fold and unfold into new and recurring shapes… Remember the feeling of liquid calm spreading through your scattered brain? Hypnotizing and invigorating. Like pouring fresh, wet, blue paint on a white canvas.
New beginnings can be blue.
After the opening, the exhibition will stay up until May 18. Opening hours: Mon/Wed: 16-20, Sat: 12-16
