    kuš!

    kuš! (speak koosh!) is a comics art anthology from Latvia founded 2007 in Riga. Every issue contains comics from international and Latvian artists to a certain theme which changes every issue. The aims of kuš! are to popularize comics in a country where this medium is practically non-existent and promoting Latvian comics abroad. 

    kuš! doesn't just publish comics on paper, but  also organizes exhibitions, workshops, comics jams and other comics related events besides traveling to international festivals to spread the Latvian comics fever.
