The journal is peer-reviewed, open access and content is available free of charge.

A wide swath of the UPM comics repository is represented in the most recent issue of the journal. Featuring is a volume from our Conversations with Comics Artists series, an edited essay collection, a title from our Great Comics Artists series, and a work appearing in English for the first time. 

Of Comics and Men was described by the reviewer as "an important clearinghouse of information that will be very useful for other scholars who want to use comic books to address questions of cultural history."

Art Spiegelman: Conversations is said to have an expertly written intoduction and will provide "a valuable resource for those studying (and perhaps even teaching) Maus, comics history and theory, and cultural responses to 9/11."

All of the reviews can be found in full online. And all titles are available from UPM.
