Sequart Organization is devoted to the study of popular culture and the promotion of comic books as a legitimate artform.
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).
