Since 2001, CBK has worked for a more varied and exciting comics culture in Sweden and on the international scene. The formal purpose of the organization is to support, evolve and disseminate comics with higher artistic ambitions. The main vehicle for this purpose is the international comics art magazine, CBA (C’est Bon Anthology). CBK also arranges exhibitions of comics art, lectures, the AltCom comics festival and other cultural events.
The vision is to push the boundaries of what can be done in comics, to broaden the perspective of what the comics medium is and can be, both in relation to itself and to other art forms.

C’est Bon started as a zine at the Comics School in Malmö in 2001, evolved into an international comics anthology called C’est Bon Anthology in 2004, then evolved again to an expanded version of the same thing with the same name in 2006. By the end of 2015, the expanded version imploded and became CBA, starting with vol 30.
CBA contains avant-garde comics from all over the world. What we’re looking for in the selection is comics with a will to experiment and a passion for storytelling, a mix of established artists and new talent, with unique creative voices and stories that matter.
Since 2001 we’ve published close to 200 artists, such as David Mack (Kabuki), Anke Feuchtenberger (W the Whore), Danijel Zezelj (Small Hands, Luna Park), Dash Shaw (Bottomless Belly Button), Kolbeinn Karlsson (The Troll King) and many more…
