Independent press and sequential visual art magazine
Editor, Adobe Photoshop · INK BRICK is a micro-press dedicated to comics poetry. We publish a journal, also called INK BRICK, built through open… · More submissions. It appears twice a year in the spring and fall. Our catalog also includes occasional mini-comics projects, and we distribute books by contributors and friends of the press.
What is “comics poetry”? In brief, we’re looking for work that explores the expressive potential of comics’ visual language. Every aspect of the comics page is there for the cartoonist-poet to use, reinvent, or break: the medium and style of the image making, the visual design and placement of the text (if any), the composition of the page or spread and its division into units like panels… and on and on. So in a sense we are asking, “What else can comics do?”
