‘Comics: Explore and Create Comic Art’ is an interactive comic exhibition from Seven Stories, coming to The Beaney during February half term.

Immerse yourself in an eclectic mix of original, iconic comic art alongside work by current children’s comic creators. This colourful and interactive exhibition will delight the whole family. 

Visitors will also have the rare opportunity to see influential British comic icons such as Desperate Dan, Dennis the Menace and Minnie the Minx. Other famous characters include Captain America, Wonder Woman, Superman and Hulk as drawn by Ian Churchill, the British artist and producer of comics for America’s two largest comic corporations–Marvel and DC comics. 

Just some of the fun, hands-on activities around the gallery include a random word generator, character creator, a giant roulette spinner to select comic settings, and a host of props, objects and special devices to inspire and create comic ideas. Plus, we’ll be opening up our Learning Lab for the first time ever, allowing for a bigger gallery space and even more creative fun!

There will also be a number of relaxed sessions for visitors wanting a quiet and calm atmosphere when visiting, when a slower pace and minimal customer noise will be encouraged. These sessions are ideal for those with an autism spectrum condition or learning disability. 

The exhibition will run from Saturday 8 February to Sunday 23 February 2020. Admission from £5.
