My only criticism of the exhibition would be that it tried to cram a hell of a lot in. I really wanted to read each and every part, but towards the end I started to just pick and choose what I thought would be most interesting! And as much as I love Dave McKean, the ‘artistic design’ could have been a bit more diverse – there seemed to be a big focus on the masks from V For Vendetta being used multiple times, and really not a lot else!
Despite this, I definitely recommend checking out Comics Unmasked : Art And Anarchy In The UK at the British Library, which ends in August. We were more than happy to pay the £9.50 per ticket, as it was worth every penny.
After the exhibition, we dashed off to a couple of comic book shops in the Covent Garden and Leicester Square areas. Liam ended up buying me a Jake (Adventure Time) mug from Forbidden Planet, and I picked up volumes 1 and 2 of Chew to give a go!
