CBA24_coverillo_web

We are currently awaiting shipment of our latest anthology from Poland, and we have some great stuff for you this time!

Contributors for this volume, on the theme “hair”, are Johannes Bergström, Marie Dahlén, Tinet Elmgren, Harukichi, Sofia Karlström, Nicolas Krizan, Slobby Psyk, Sylvie Ringer and Jenny Wildfang, with C’est Bon Kultur members Christoffer Frostgård, Henri Gylander and My Murphy, all packed in a glorious cover by Mari Ahokoivu!

cbavol24cvr_50x65mm_rgb Not only have we decided to publish every volume in full colour after the success with last year’s Kolorama, the Hair volume will also present to you a total redesign of the magazine (which you got a sample of with our first hardcover book, All Saints). Our future covers will feature wraparound panorama illustrations, enhanced by UV foil printing for a delicious finish.

The content remains the same, high quality comics art from exciting new talent as well as veteran artists, united by their will to take the comics form in new directions. We hope you will like the new packaging, too!

All Saints

AllSaints_coverillo_web

C’est Bon Kultur has decided to take our anthologies one step further and will now publish every other anthology as CBA Presents, which focuses on an individual artist who we think deserves a wider audience. First up is Dutch artist Marcel Ruijters with his funny and unusual All Saints! This is a collection of short stories featuring female saints and their lives, depicted in a style inspired by illuminated manuscripts and told with a wry sense of humour. It is in full colour and co-printed in Danish, by Forlæns, and in Dutch, by Sherpa.

cbavol23cvr_50x707mm_rgbMarcel Ruijters is well known in his home country, and is published in several other european languages. But to this date he has only been published once in English, by Top Shelf, with his novel Inferno, which also won the prize for best Dutch graphic novel in 2008.

We’re really excited about All Saints, and look forward to publishing other interesting artists in the future.
