Celebrate the development of the exciting medium of comic books, with a focus on local, national and international illustrators, writers, cartoonists and graphic artists.

Opening Saturday 20 April, 3pm | MANAAKI NUI | Free, all welcome

 

Journey with us through a timeline of comic book art and working drawings, from the 1930s through to today's graphic novels, and have a go at creating some of your own comic-style artwork.

Comic books have been an integral part of popular culture for nearly a century, with their roots tracing back to the early 1900s when newspaper comic strips became a sensation. However, it wasn't until the 1930s that the first modern comic books began to appear, following the success of Superman's debut in Action Comics #1 in 1938. This marked the start of what is now known as the Golden Age of Comics.

Journey with us through a timeline of comic books and poster art, from the 1930s through to today's graphic novels, alongside working drawings from some of New Zealand's leading graphic artists, and have a go at creating some of your own comic book art.

In association with Green Light Productions.
