Call for Papers — Children’s Drawings in Comics

We are launching a call for papers for a special issue of Comicalités, edited by Maaheen Ahmed and Benoît Crucifix, on children’s drawings in comics. This special issue examines different ways of looking at and thinking about children’s drawings in the history of comics. The diversity and multiplicity of interactions between comics (as a cultural object produced for children) and children’s drawings (both as objects of adult discourses and as children’s productions) offer a vast field of inquiry. This thematic issue invites contributions along three interlocking angles.
