    Since its founding in 1974, Stripgids’ (Comics Guide) mission has been to treat comics as a mature genre through serious journalism. Last year, when the Flemish Literature Fund drastically cut its subsidies, the future of the comics magazine looked bleak.

    Now, thanks to a new editorial team of four Flemish graphic artists – Judith Vanistendael, Simon Spruyt, Marnix Verduyn and Marc Legendre –, journalists Roel Daenen and Karl Van den Broeck, and design agency Pjotr, the guide is back in a fresh format.

    The reborn Stripgids is published by non-profit Strip Turnhout and highlights both the latest trends in the industry and the rich comic heritage of Flanders. Instead of a new issue every quarter, it now comes out twice a year and features in-depth essays and articles.
