CBA vol 41 – Call for submissions: Comics & Texts

CBA vol 41 – Subversive Superhero Stories
(Guidelines for text pieces and comics for this issue at the bottom of this description)

For many years now, CBK has acted to expand as well as to introduce art comics to the world. Everything from Hair to Fragments has been the focus, and for our next volume, we are focusing on one of the biggest genres in comic books, the superhero comics. We’re looking for comics with an explicit connection to the Superhero genre, that at the same time subverts the expectations and pushes the boundaries to tell a different story than the conventional stories usually told.

Deadline: JUNE 1
Main editor: Henrik Rogowski
Color scheme: Color/Black and White

Within this space, there are no limits.

Please send us high-resolution files from the start.
Also include a short presentation text about yourself, with one 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!
