Ahead of the UK’s biggest comics exhibition to date, Comics Unmasked: Art and Anarchy in the UK, the British Library has unveiled a brand new artwork by ‘Tank Girl’ co-creator, Jamie Hewlett, featuring a new female character.
Comics Unmasked traces the history of the British comic book and explores how comics and graphic novels have uncompromisingly addressed such subjects as violence, sexuality and drugs, breaking social boundaries with the innovative form that marries literature and visual art.
Hewlett will be joined by the original writer of Tank Girl Alan Martin for a special public event, ‘Tank Girl and the Aftermath’, at the British Library on Friday 27 June, 18.30-20.00. More details at the British Library website.
