Book Reviewing for The Comics Grid!


The Comics Grid: Journal of Comics Scholarship is a born-digital, open access, open peer review academic journal dedicated to comics scholarship. The journal aims to make original, media-specific contributions to the field of comics scholarship and to advance the appreciation of comic art.

We often receive review copies of academic books on comics and occassionally some comics publications as well.. We only receive one copy of each book or publication and announce them as "Received" on our blog at

Today we received a review copy of Alan Moore and the Gothic Tradition, edited by Matthew J.A. Green (Manchester University Press, Manchester and New York, 2013), and recently we received a review copy of Comics in French. The European Bande Dessinée in Context, by Laurence Grove (Berghahn Books, New York and Oxford, January 2013).

Last month we also received a review copy of the latest issue of Off Life (August/September 2013).
