Conundrum: An Annual Magazine of the Comic Arts is a new annual publication that’s part catalogue and part magazine. The magazine’s goal is to introduce comic readers to new work, and includes lengthy excerpts of upcoming graphic novels, comics from artists we love, and behind-the-scenes interviews. This first issue includes interviews with Dakota McFadzean and Geneviève Lebleu, excerpts from Anna Sommer, new work by Keiler Roberts, and much more.
We developed this magazine in response to a gap in the cultural and critical marketplace for discussion of literary graphic novels (or “alt-comics”). We applaud The Comics Journal for re-instituting their print iteration, and admire Les Cahiers de la BD. But there is room for more–and we look forward to adding to the discussion.
