Have you ever read a review of a comic or graphic novel on a website and felt like you were only reading a book report? How many of you noticed an article in an academic journal that focused on one of your favorite graphic novels, but it ended up glossing over – or completely forgetting to mention - aspects of the art and dryly deconstructed the narrative?

The editors of The KB Journal are proud to announce the Spring 2016 edition is live and available at www.kbjournal.org.

The edition also features a timely and relevant dramatistic analysis of the discourse of Syrian President Assad and his opposition in the ongoing Syrian civil war and an analysis of the identification of Anonymous' visual identity.
