Sequart Research & Literacy Organization is a non-profit organization devoted to promoting comic books as a legitimate artform.
Our mission is twofold. First, we promote research into comics-related topics, publishing books, producing documentary films, and maintaining online resources that encourage comics scholarship. Second, we promote comics literacy by promoting the medium and encouraging others to experience the unique artform known as comic books.
The term “sequart” is an abbreviation of “sequential art.” It is used as a term for the medium itself, independent of particulars such as genre (e.g. super-heroes) or format (e.g. comic books, graphic novels, manga, newspaper strips, illustrated text, children’s picture books, and even sculpture such as the stations of the cross).
Sequart Publisher Julian Darius and Head Book Editor Mike Phillips discuss the organization in more detail in an interview with Joe Berenato here.
