Revealing the cultural and historical context of the graphic narrative.

This survey show explores how different societies have told stories in pictures across time, starting with hieroglyphics in Ancient Egypt and spanning up to present day comics, such as Scooby Doo.

Key examples include the original artwork for Batman, New X Men and Superman, sketches Archie Gilkison drew from the trenches during the First World War, and graphic pieces by Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Picasso, Rauschenberg, Max Ernst and David Hockney.
