This will be CBA vol 32, the first issue of 2016 which marks the ten year anniversary of this incarnation of the antholoy. You will join the ranks of such great artists as Anke Feuchtenberger, Danijel Zezelj, David Mack, Ho Che Anderson, Rutu Modan and many more (see the complete list of creators who have participated in the past)!
What we are looking for is comics which rely on artistic ambitions and a will to experiment rather than what has been done a thousand times before. We want to expand the boundaries of what is possible to achieve in the comics medium.
The theme for this issue is BLUE BEGINNINGS which is a suggested theme, not obligatory. We don’t want you to feel constricted by this, but if you need the extra inspiration, use this theme however you want and make your own interpretation of the words.
Anything is welcome, but we prefer comics that are about 5-30 pages.
Resolution: 1200 dpi line art or 300 dpi grayscale/CMYK
Bleed: 5mm in all directions.
Within this space, there are no limits.
Please send us your FINISHED COMIC in high-resolution files from the start.
And also include a short presentation text about yourself, with URL (if you have a website).
Please ask us if you are unsure about formats, resolution, bleed, etc. We prefer stupid questions to bad files. And there are no stupid questions.
Send comics, questions, etc to:
Unfortunately we cannot offer you any payment for participating. If we publish your submission you will receive 10 free copies of the issue. That’s all we can offer at this date. Hopefully you will find being in CBA an enjoyable experience. Naturally, copyright for your material will stay in your hands and we do accept stories which have been published elsewhere before.
DEADLINE: October 31
