Call for submissions – CBA vol 59: ALONELINESS

Call for submissions for:
CBA vol 59: Aloneliness
Main Editor: Oskar Aspman
Deadline: October 1

In a world where everyone seems to be moving into the forced crowd that is the City (more than 50% of the entire population of earth live on the 2% surface that is urbanized, in Sweden the rate is 85%). The epidemic of loneliness is skyrocketing alongside the skyscrapers, we sit inside our empty little apartments with our empty little hearts. The mortality rate of being lonely rivaling those of smoking too much. We are but morals and the City is our graveyard it seems.

And one bad thing isn’t enough, because at the same time a new phenomenon is being researched. Aloneliness is the negative feelings that arise from NOT spending enough time alone. In a city, in a crowd there is never time to slow down, to contemplate, to ponder and to recover. Stress and its manufactured hellhole well-being-spa-solutions is in itself another epidemic.

SO this issue of CBA invites you to explore this longing to be more alone. Take us to your favourite place of solitude. Show us moments of solitary relaxation. Tell us the tale of nosthalgia-ridden woodlands, a sunlit forest glade, the forgotten refuge on a rooftop in a crowded city.

Where do you go to, my lovely
When you’re alone in your bed?

—SUBMISSION GUIDELINES—
Please read and follow these guidelines:
Number of pages: We prefer comics that are about 5-30 pages, but any number is welcome.
Format: 20 x 26 cm
Color: Color / Black and white
Language: English
File format: .TIF
Resolution: 1200 dpi line art or 300 dpi CMYK
Length (texts): A good size for a text is ca 7500 characters (including spaces), but it can also be longer or shorter.
Bleed: 5mm. Think you know how to handle bleed? Read this to make sure you know what we mean.
Within this space, there are no limits.

Delivery: We prefer download links that do NOT require us to login anywhere (wetransfer usually works fine, for example).
Request: Please don’t use Comic Sans. We don’t like it and will ask you to change to another font.
And again; Please check our guidelines for bleed.
Please send us high-resolution files from the start.
Include a short bio*, with one URL (if you have a website or similar).

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!
Normally, we also organize a release exhibition showcasing sample pages from the new issue. Please let us know if you’re NOT ok with us using your works for that purpose. It’s part of our marketing and it usually takes place in a physical exhibition space, although these days we’re more likely to make a digital exhibition online at the Hybriden website.

*Your bio should be approximately 500-700 characters in length. It should read more as an entertaining and informative bio and less as a CV. What you want to say about yourself is up to you, but it’s generally more interesting for our readers to know about your interests, who you are and what else you’ve published rather than where you’ve studied. We may edit it if needed to fit our format.
Send comics, questions, etc to: submissions(a)cbkcomics(.)com


Unfortunately we cannot guarantee you any payment for participating (although these last few years we’ve had more financing so we have been able to pay at least something, i.e. when all the expenses have been paid we will share the surplus amongst the participants). If we publish your submission you will receive 10 free copies of the issue. That’s all we can promise at this date. Hopefully you will find being in CBA an enjoyable experience. Naturally, copyright for your material will stay in your hands.

Also note that we are constantly overworked and there’s a great risk that we won’t get in touch in case your submission doesn’t make it into the current volume (we WILL, however, let you know if we do publish your submission, and if you don’t get into this one we might keep your comic for a future issue). We are sorry for this and will try to catch up as soon as things clear up (optimistically in 2025)…

Call for submissions – CBA vol 58: MODERN GLOSSOLALIA – THE EROSION OF MEANING

Call for submissions for:
CBA vol 58: MODERN GLOSSOLALIA – THE EROSION OF MEANING
Main Editor: Mattias Elftorp
Deadline: Jun 30

Edit, just before the original deadline:
EXTENDED DEADLINE! It is now June 30!
I also changed the theme title! It is now Modern Glossolalia, instead of Political Glossolalia. The reason is that I think the word “political” in this context feels somehow superficial and too specific. Because everything is political, but using the word seems to fence in the potentials of the theme. The theme description and intent remain the same.
And I changed the image while I was at it.
/Mattias

How do we talk when words that used to mean certain things have become so vague that they can be freely appropriated by anyone, for any purpose? And what’s up with the currently so prevalent flirting with war, fascism and the dehumanization of anyone who doesn’t fit into the unspoken and conveniently unspecified national identity?
Objective truth (if there ever was such a thing) and even language itself seems to be sacrificed on the altar of rhetoric and propaganda.
What are the consequences when you can string any random, misspelled words together and people will make their own connections and decide to aggressively either agree or disagree, wholeheartedly even though the sentence actually makes no sense?

Bring your own spin on this. From alternate history to experiments with glossolalia to explorations of nationalism of the illiterate, what take is something only you would think of?

Call for Submissions – CBA vol 56: UNCOMICS

CBA vol 56: Uncomics
Main Editor: Allan Haverholm
DEADLINE: Feb 20

UNCOMICS
Abstract art emerged in the early 20th century as a reaction to the complexities and — just as often — atrocities of modern society. Meanwhile, embedded in the entertainment industry, comics evolved primarily in terms of disposable spectacle or literary ambition; stylized pictures in service of story.

Comics scholar Jan Baetens noted a decade ago that narrative “melts in the air when [abstraction] walks in”. Living in a time of hyperlinked, multi-threaded and immersive narrative, we suggest instead that abstraction opens up to non-linear, ambiguous understandings of comics. Understandings so contradictory in terms that we need a new phrase to describe them — we give you: uncomics.

An artistic field where contemporary art and comics inform each other. Where the absence of sequence encourages the reader to investigate the picture plane(s) in any direction and order, becoming an active co-creator in the process. A space outside the tedious limitations of story where images both abstract and suggestive interact. Comics, at last, as a visual art form.

For inspiration:
Follow the hashtag #uncomics on Twitter, which will be used to post inspirational material.

CBA guest editor Allan Haverholm invites you to break the mold and unmake comics. To bridge the gap between comics and modern/contemporary art. Be bold, explore and dig deep!
Allan Haverholm is a graphic artist and comics researcher, former co-editor of CBA and host of the upcoming Uncomics Podcast.

Comics for CBA vol 54|55

Reminder:

CBA vol 54|55: WAS IT A CAR OR A CAT I SAW?
Main Editor: Kinga Dukaj
NEW DEADLINE: OCTOBER 31

Clarification:
This is not a theme about dreams. We’re not after dreams specifically, just that feeling you can get when you don’t know if something is real or not. A very Lynchian feeling. More Twin Peaks season 4 than the depiction of a dream.

Have you ever just had to stop what you’re doing and go “wait, is this a dream?”
When the unknown starts bleeding into reality and you are forced to question your sanity, if just a little bit.
You know the sort of thing that happens in dreams that makes you sure it’s just a dream? How do you cope when it happens in the waking world?

In this theme we’ll explore the dreamy and the bizarre, the uncanny in the mundane, the creepy in the dark corners of everyday life. Magical realism with a twisted flair, comics that invoke a mystical, surreal, dreamlike state of mind, with a tinge of discomfort… Think of the movies by Lynch, for example…

Check the original post for detailed instructions.

Call for submissions: CBA vols 52 + 53

Call for submissions: comics and text articles for

CBA vol 53: PLACEHOLDER (EXTENDED DEADLINE!)
and
CBA vol 52: BURNOUT (NO MORE SUBMISSIONS)

CBA vol 53: PLACEHOLDER
Main Editor: Leviathan
DEADLINE: Mar 31 Apr 30 (EXTENDED DEADLINE!)
The pandemic paused the world for an indefinite time. What does that mean practically? What does it do to our consciousness and how we experience our existence? Some places see recovering wildlife and cleaner air. Which other phenomena appear to replace our old routines? We’re waiting, and in our wait, we imitate the “real” we hope will soon return. We are like placeholders in our own lives.

We’re looking for comic contributions and articles exploring these themes. Scroll down for submission guidelines!

CBA vol 52: BURNOUT
Main Editor: Mattias Elftorp
DEADLINE: Mar 15 (NOW CLOSED FOR SUBMISSIONS)
Burnout has become an increasingly normal part of everyday life for many of us since the term was getting widespread use in the late 1900s. From hospital staff to comic creators to basically any job in the gig economy. Anyone who doesn’t have a steady income, or who is expected to do more work in less time than is reasonable, can feel this. So who is to blame? Could we create a situation, a systemic change, to avoid the conditions that cause burnout?
What we’re looking for aren’t necessarily stories of depressing social realism, but artistic expressions of that feeling, suggestions for solutions, wishful thinking and visual abreactions. Expressions of rage rather than apathy, insurrection rather than complicity. Something to read for strength in times of austerity.

Call for submissions: CBA vol 51

Call for submissions: comics and text articles for
CBA vol 51: Underworld

The Underworld exists in many forms: an invisible realm of all deceased, a torturous prison for sinners, whatever alien societies rule a ‘hollow earth’, as well as the non- mythological but equally weird organisms that really do scurry around below us. Less literally, it could imply unseen aspects of any organisation, or the darkest moments in an individual’s journey.

We’re looking for comic contributions, and articles exploring the theme of Underworld.

Call for submissions: comics and text articles for
CBA vol 49: Origin of life

Where were you born? Where are you from? When these questions are asked really what the person means often is, who are you?

In the new volume of CBA we want you to ask yourselves some questions. Who are humanity as a collective consciousness? Where do we come from? All these little specks of life in this big dark space of nothing, and for what?

The theme Origin of life means vast possibilities to explore in art and comics, from religious interpretations to philosophy to strict scientific research. Challenge our current beliefs, make something fun and interesting, or something entirely else. We’re looking forward to seeing your comics!

Call for submissions: CBA vol 48 – Nedjem (comics and articles)

CBA vol 48 – Nedjem

In old times farmers left pans of milk out for Bygul and Trjegul, the two cats who pulled the goddess Freya’s chariot, to protect the crops in their fields. The cat Baiyun from russian folklore would lull you to sleep with his stories and once you were asleep, devour you, soul and all. The goddess Bastet took on the form of a lion as well as a cat and was the protector of the sun god Ra. The monstrous Cath Palug is said to haunt the Isle of Anglesey and once killed 180 soldiers that came ashore the island.

Cats have through all times been both feared and loved, despised and worshiped. Bad omens or signs of luck, depending on time and place they can be either a curse or a blessing. There’s a duality to these myths and superstitions, much like there is to human nature. Now we want you to send us your best comics about cats and the duality they represent!
