Together against the comics shortage

Due to the ongoing Corona crisis, many comics festivals and similar events have been canceled. For many comics creators, especially new and alternative ones, this leads to a great disappointment when the few opportunities disappear for readers and creators to meet. Fosfor wants to remedy this.

Fosfor is a non-profit distribution system for comics zines. It’s part of the Hybriden webshop and is run by the non-profit cultural association CBK in collaboration with Tusen Serier and Fanzineverkstaden. Our goal is to be a platform for comics creators who normally find it difficult to reach larger audiences and to strengthen the general culture of comics self-publishing.

Especially in times like these, it’s a good idea to think collectively and do things together rather than as competing individuals. Instead of each creator trying to sell their zines, prints etc on their own, Fosfor was created as a platform where a whole lot of us can be found in the same place.

In the webshop, buyers can easily get an overview of a wide variety of comics. Sellers simply need to fill out our form for their works to be posted on the site within a short while. All profits go back to the creators themselves, we only add a small sum to cover packaging and similar costs. Through our 19 years of small press publishing, CBK has devised a smooth and secure system for sales and since we ourselves are comics creators and know what it’s like not to have a lot of resources, we want to use our capabilities to support the whole culture.

Fosfor is not a service where you hand your stuff over to someone else who sells them for profit, but rather a place for shared exchange for everyone’s benefit. When other creators share the link to Hybriden and Fosfor, it means that customers looking for other things may also find your stuff. Also, customers don’t pay for postage from several different sources, but get all their comics in one package and save money.

Of course we can’t compete with an entire comics festival, but we are working extra hard at the moment to expand our available selection and streamline the registration process for new zines to meet the needs of the current situation. All in order to achieve the feeling of meeting a myriad of comics and creators in one place.

Here you will find the Fosfor store and a form to request info about how to register your zines, prints and stickers.
And here you will find other products in the webshop, comics from: CBK, Tusen Serier and Wormgod as well as a recently published selection of prints in various techniques.

linocut horror – screenprint terror – comix branquignole

Dödskallar och insekter, knotiga lemmar och en doft av black metal, framfört i grafiska tekniker som linoleumtryck, screenprint och andra, mer experimentella sätt att reproducera konst, tillsammans med målningar och teckningar, ibland som serier, ibland som enskilda konstverk. Vi visar upp en samling av verk från den franska konstnären Alkbazz.

Alkbazz är en av de drivande krafterna i Le Garage L, en tryckverkstad, bokbinderi och utställningslokal i byn Forcalquier i franska Alperna. Le garage L fungerar även som förlag för serie- och konstböcker. Dessa är ofta tryckta för hand i screen- eller linoleumtryck. Alkbazz själv ligger bakom undergroundserieantologin Alkom’X sedan många år. Han har också tidigare deltagit på seriefestivalen AltCom i Malmö.

Welcome to the release event and exhibition for the latest issue of the international comics anthology!

Join us for an evening of comics and drunk in celebration of the Future and the ongoing fictionalization of our reality. Check out comic samples on the walls, featuring these great artists:

About CBA vol 47:

Science and fiction rule our lives. The laws of physics seem set in stone while the laws of man are arbitrary mirrors of the morality of the times. Gods and spirits are creations of the mind but also the explanation when comprehension fails. What lies beyond our understanding? Is it more science or something else? What dark forces lurk outside our field of vision? What machineries of death and destruction are we yet to invent in the name of money (which used to be metal and paper but is now to a great extent nothing but speculation and expectations)? What (or who) else meet in the intersection between science fiction and real science? What came first? The egg or the hatching machine?

If you can’t make it to Hybriden, you can order the book at the Hybriden webshop.

Main editor of this issue: Mattias Elftorp
The exhibition is organized with support from Malmö Kulturnämnd, the anthology with support from Kulturrådet. Exhibition printed at Fanzineverkstaden.

Feel free to invite people to the Facebook event.

CBK: Qtopia (utställning)

Release exhibition for: CBA vol 45: QTOPIA
Place: Hybriden (Mitt Möllan, Bangatan 5, Malmö)
Opening: July 19, 17-22
Lasts until: September (probably)
Opening hours from August: Wed-Fridays: 11-15, Sundays: 12-15

Release exhibition for the new volume of CBA, featuring visions of a world where stories about HBTQ+ characters don’t need to end in tragedy.

So many LGBTQ narratives end in tragedy as a consequence of the LGBTQ-hood of the characters. Those stories are important because LGBTQ people are still being targeted by prejudice, discrimination and violence, but in this volume of CBA we encouraged artists to do something different. To tell queer stories where the queerness isn’t a narrative catalyst for bad things, but rathera source for joy or love or just one characteristic among others.

Queer tales about situations involving LGBTQ characters. Utopian queer tales in the sense that everything might not be perfect, but at least the horrible things that happen don’t have anything to do with the characters’ sexual orientation.

The exhibition will feature selected pieces from the anthology, but also additional artworks by local artists such as Olivia Skoglund, newly examinated from the comic school in Malmö and working on her first book on experiences as a trans girl, Adrian Malmgren, trans/hbtq-activist and creator of the comic Wicked Hero, and Emmie Jansson, currently a student at textile arts&design at Östra Grevie. There will also be artworks by Ylva Oknelid, Mattis Telin and Lisa Örtlund on display!

Fanzineverkstadens utställning & Fosfor fanzinedistro-premiär

Fanzineverkstaden har nu haft öppet i nästan ett år och vi tyckte det var dags att visa upp en del av det material som har skapats på verkstaden.

Onsdag den 5 juni kl 17-22 är det vernissage på Hybriden för en permanent utställning där du kan se screentryck, fanzines med mera av några av medlemmarna på Fanzineverkstaden.

Detta blir också den officiella öppningen av Fosfor, vår fanzinedistro som finns på Hybridens hemsida och som nu också kommer att finnas i den fysiska butiken. Kom och bläddra i ca 150 olika titlar!

Och passa på att se den pågående utställningen Lore av CBK som kommer att sitta kvar ett tag till.

Vi bjuder på snacks och dryck.
Vi ses där!

Fanzineverkstaden drivs av Tusen Serier i nära samarbete med CBK, med stöd av Arvsfonden.

CBA vol 44: LORE release exhibition

Release exhibition for CBA vol 44: LORE
Place: Hybriden (Mitt Möllan, Bangatan 5, Malmö)
Opening: Mar 15, 18–22
Lasts until: May 31 (may be subject to change)
Opening hours: Check back here later…

On march 15th we invite you to a new concept exhibition, reminiscent of classics like BLEED or ACETON (CH3COCH3) to celebrate the release of CBA vol 44.
Enter our enchanted forest and join us in another world at Hybriden! A small piece of the old woods, filtered through the current world and turned into a means for continuing the old storytelling traditions in new format.

Click cover image to order the book

Folklore – it’s the stories our parents told us as children as well as a glimpse into another world, of fairies, trolls, and magic. But folklore is more than just stories about bad children who get eaten by witches; it’s our shared fears, hopes and dreams and they often share similar themes across the world. Folk tales have been told by an infinite number of people with equally infinite motives; some to warn, others to encourage and some who just try to make sense of the world around them.

In volume 44 of CBA we dig deep into the roots of folklore from different cultures and explore what it has to say about ourselves as human beings regardless of nationality.

We will serve snacks, drinks (with or without alcohol) and as always you will be able to buy the new volume at a reduced price.

We look forward to seeing you all there!

The exhibition is organized by CBK with support from Malmö Kulturnämnd. Prints were made at Mediaverkstaden and Fanzineverkstaden.



Helgen 2-3 mars pågår Seriefest i Malmö, arrangerad bland annat av medlemmar i CBK.

Vi välkomnar dig, utställare såväl som besökare, att delta i vår Seriefest-Fest! På lördagskvällen öppnar Hybriden dörrarna för en trevlig fest för oss serieälskare. Passa på att prata med den där serieskaparen du beundrar, testa att teckna på Hybridens fönster eller delta i stafettserieteckning på väggen i Hybridens seriehörna!

Vi bjuder på snacks och läsk, ifall du vill ta med något att dricka utöver det är du välkommen att göra så.
