Comics Unmasked: Art and Anarchy in the UK
LONDON  •  British Museum  •  Ongoing
Comics Unmasked is the UK’s largest ever exhibition of mainstream and underground comics, showcasing works that uncompromisingly address politics, gender, violence, sexuality and altered states. It explores the full anarchic range of the medium with works that challenge categorisation, preconceptions and the status quo, alongside original scripts, preparatory sketches and final artwork that demystify the creative process.

The extensive comic book collection on display alongside original artwork and scripts features loans from such names as Neil Gaiman, Grant Morrison, Dave Gibbons, China Mieville and Mark Millar. From the 1825 Glasgow Looking Glass, thought to be the first ever comic, to Judge Dredd’s helmet from the recent film adaptation of the 2000AD Judge Dredd series.
