Curators Adrian Edwards, John Harris Dunning and Paul Gravett talk about this major exhibition at the British Library. Runs 2 May - 19 August 2014.

Featuring such iconic names as Neil Gaiman (Sandman), Alan Moore (Watchmen, V for Vendetta), Grant Morrison (Batman: Arkham Asylum) and Posy Simmonds (Tamara Drewe), this exhibition traces the British comics tradition back through classic 1970s titles including 2000AD, Action and Misty to 19th-century illustrated reports of Jack the Ripper and beyond.

Parental guidance is advised for visitors under 16 years of age due to the explicit nature of some of the exhibits on display.
