Inks: The Journal of the Comics Studies Society features scholarly research on sequential art, graphic narrative, and cartooning. The journal brings together scholarly essays, archival materials, and conversations with leading comics professionals. Inks highlights scholarship from a wide range of academic disciplines and engages all periods of comic history, with both a US and an international comics focus. Inks is published by Ohio State University Press three times a year and is available in print and on Project Muse.
Inks invites scholarly essays on any aspect of comics, including comic strips; comic books, papers, and magazines; graphic novels, albums, and other graphic books; webcomics and other electronic formats; single-panel cartoons, including editorial and gag cartoons; caricature; animation; and all other related forms and traditions. Submissions are evaluated using a blind peer review process. Inks uses a house style based on the current edition of The Chicago Manual of Style (endnotes). Manuscripts should be limited to 8000 words including notes and should be submitted via the Scholastica portal.
