The Conceptual Comics Archives on Monoskop and Ubuweb document the recent emergence of radical forms of experimentation and demonstrate how contemporary comics artists are informed by a heightened perceptual awareness of the comics industry’s very own infrastructural affordances. As these publications demonstrate, comics artists are able to leverage the dependencies of an ever-growing network and digital technologies and by becoming attentive to the infrastructural dynamics at play, and are presented with the opportunity to introduce pressure points in the socioeconomic backdrop of the comics industry. Follow us in an archival adventure where we equally embrace the real, the unclaimed, the anticipated and the fictional in artistic practices in contemporary comics.
