This is the first major UK retrospective of the celebrated comic artist and graphic novelist.

Posy Simmonds’ sharp satire and progressive female characters have defined a career spanning 50 years. Since the early 1970s, when she began sending up Guardian readers in her long-running comic strip for the paper that became Mrs Weber’s Diary, Simmonds’ everyday heroines have captured the popular imagination.

The exhibition will feature her early-career pastiches, iconic cartoon strips for The Guardian and children’s books such as Fred, which became an Oscar-nominated film. It will also include the first ever British graphic novel, True Love, unseen pages from Tamara Drewe and drawings from Simmonds’ new 2018 book, Cassandra Darke.
