The Comics Grid is a collaborative, peer-edited online academic journal dedicated to comics scholarship. Its purpose is to make or iginal contributions to the field of comics scholarship and to advance the appreciation of comic art within academia and the general cultural mediascape. Our ISSN is 2048-0792. We believe that online, open access, rapid scholarly publication offers great potential to maximise academic research and teaching impact. All contributions, including those by members of the Editorial Board, are collectively reviewed, edited and discussed by academic peers prior to publication. We are passionate about the importance of digital literacy and public engagement. As a side-effect of our initiative we also encourage scholars to become fluent in online publishing and to engage in online dissemination and public engagement practices through effective uses of social media and other online strategies.
