Comics Unmasked : Art & Anarchy In The UK

Paul Gravett
Various
This great new book by John Harris Dunning and Paul Gravett is a fantastic read and a perfect companion to the exciting new Comics Unmasked exhibition which recently opened at the British Library, and is a must-have for comics fans everywhere. Of course we all have happy memories of favourite childhood reading (Beano, Dandy, Eagle, Mad, Viz — the list is endless). But how aware are we that there is something inherently anarchic about comics? A huge variety have been produced over the centuries by British creators. It is a strong tradition that continues today. 
 
Some of the biggest names in comics — Alan Moore (Watchmen, V for Vendetta), Neil Gaiman (Sandman), Mark Millar (Kick-Ass) and Grant Morrison (Batman: Arkham Asylum) — are featured in this visually stimulating book – but there are many, many more. And it is the diversity of content and form, as well as comics' ongoing relevance, which is a main focus. The seditious aspects of the comics tradition — adult, underground and 'alternative' material — is highlighted, alongside the superheroes who still dominate the scene. There is anarchy everywhere that you look! James Bacon has a huge report with plenty of photos of the Comics Unmasked Exhibition over on our blog.
