European Comic Art is the first English-language scholarly publication devoted to the study of European-language graphic novels, comic strips, comic books and caricature. Published in association with the American Bande Dessinée Society and the International Bande Dessinée Society, European Comic Art builds on existing scholarship in French-language comic art and is able to draw on the scholarly activities undertaken by both organisations. However, our editorial board and consultative committee bring expertise on a wider European area of comic art production and the journal will emphasise coverage of work from across Europe, including Eastern Europe.

European Comic Art aims to address a broad range of topics in the field of comic art, including but by no means limited to:

  • The current "manga-isation" of the European comics scene by Asian comics
  • Mutual influences of European  and American comics
  • Feminist comic art and women cartoonists
  • Comics without words
  • Hergé and the clear-line school of cartooning
  • Cartoonist collectives and independent publishers since 1990
  • Genre and the industry
  • Comics and digital media
  • The cartoonist as reporter
  • Comics in their historical context
  • Comics as medium for autobiography and autofiction
  • Postcolonial comics
  • Comics and national/transnational identity
  • Time and space in comics
  • Comics and architecture
  • Comics and the avant-garde
  • Advances and debates in comics theory
