Beginnings Gallery / 110 Meserole Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11222
B.ü.L.b comix is a sequential art, non-profit making, publishing house based in Geneva, Switzerland. With the support of authors and friends, fueling Nicolas Robel’s (initiator) along with Mathieu Christe’s (partner) devotion to independent publishing, they’re still here, thank you! From an initial and reasonable investment, no grants or refill have been necessary to make it happen and last. Books printed in Switzerland as authors’ salary, every earned penny is carefully planned. B.ü.L.b comix offers more than printed matter, it proposes an economic system, successful in its limitations. DIY spirit meets Swiss precision and craft in total editorial freedom.
