From the Taylor & Francis website for the journal:

Journal of Graphic Novels and Comics covers all aspects of the graphic novel, comic strip and comic book focusing primarily, but not exclusively, on the twentieth and the twenty-first centuries. The emphasis is on the production and consumption of comics in their cultural, institutional and creative contexts.

“The journal aims to reflect not only standard forms such as the superhero and other genres of the comic book, but also the increasing interest in modern forms and emerging genres of the comic, for instance, medicine, psychology and, autobiography. Our scope is international, covering not only English language comics but also worldwide comic culture, recently featuring articles about European, Indian, Japanese and Korean comics. We would like to extend into other comic cultures in Australia, Africa, South America and Scandinavia.

“We are interested in the production and consumption of comics and their context within culture and the mass media, for instance within promotional culture, digital technologies and fandom. The journal aims to reflect and encourage the widest breadth of approaches to the comic, as a mass medium, and its associated forms.”

Now available to the University of Cambridge electronically from volume 1 (2010) to present.
