According to the comics critic Tom Spurgeon, "Comic Art Magazine is a comics publication that rather than engaging with the good and bad of the medium right now has chosen to investigate the good and interesting no matter when it's been done. There are two underlying values that are frequently given expression. The first is a re-telling of comics history that emphasizes the quality work done both before and during the medium's formal lifespan. The second is a concern with comics as they are created by artists, an understated attention to what it's like to put yourself in service of this particular form of expression."[1] Tom Spurgeon is an American writer and editor. ...

In 2003 the magazine was nominated for both the Eisner Awards and Harvey Awards. The Eisner Awards are given for achievement in comic books. ... The Harvey Awards are given for achievement in comic books. ...
