The Comics Grid: Journal of Comics Scholarship

Founded in 2010, The Comics Grid: Journal of Comics Scholarship is an open-access, researcher-led, peer-reviewed academic journal.

The Comics Grid aims to promote innovative comics scholarship where the writing is energetic and theoretically and interpretively bold, and that presents specialised knowledge in accessible and engaging forms.

Rapid Responses: Comics in and of The Moment

This special collection invited timely creative responses concerning how comics are used in generative ways as spaces for people to find community, as tools for dissemination of stories otherwise untold or voices unheard, and as spaces for the processing of grief and self-discovery in difficult times.
