The book contains a compilation of the peer-reviewed articles published on the Comics Grid Wordpress platform between January 2011 and January 2012.

In 2013, The Comics Grid moved its main publishing platfrom to an Open Journal System and is now published by Ubiquity Press and continues its work as a full-fledged open access journal. (See links below).

This compilation was edited by Ernesto Priego in London from January to April 2012. The original chapters were co-edited by the 2011-2012 editorial board, which included Roberto Bartual, Esther Claudio Kathleen Dunley, Michael Hill, Greice Schneider and Tony Venezia.

The book’s cover and back cover were designed by Nicolas Labarre. The Comics Grid logo was first conceived by Greice Schneider using the Badaboom BB font. Brad Brooks was in charge of the editorial design.

On 20th March 2012 we shared an initial limited digital edition test-release of 200 downloads of The Comics Grid, Journal of Comics Scholarship. Year One, including content published on this journal between January 2011 and January 2012. That test release edition was composed using Booktype.

With many thanks to all the contributors, editors and peer reviewers.
