 Comics Unmasked

21 Jan – 13 August 2017

Abbey House Museum

From Dan Dare to Dennis the Menace, Marvel to Manga, this display explores comic strips past and present through objects and also the eyes of the local comic collecting community, from cosplayers to convention-goers.

The exhibition display has been created by Abbey House Museum’s young curators, The Vintage Youth Club, who are aged 14-21.

A short film looks at local comic shop day at OK Comics, Leeds, and the Thought Bubble convention at Leeds Royal Armouries.

The exhibition also features original artwork by Johnny Cosmic, and a specially commissioned comic book by Leeds Cosplay Group.
