Harrods is hosting Comic Timing, an exhibition of original British comic art encompassing a comprehensive slice through the British comic scene, from early Dennis the Menace and Oor Willie through to the likes of Watchmen and Viz.
The show features artwork from comics as diverse as Jackie, Commando and 2000AD and by artists including Jamie Hewlett, Raymond Briggs and Posy Simmonds.
Bloghorn understands you’ll be able to find drawing and story-telling from the following:
Watchmen, Judge Dredd, The Bash Street Kids, Dennis The Menace (1950s) Korky The Kat (1930s), Oor Wullie (1940s), Batman: The Killing Joke, V For Vendetta, From Hell, Tamara Drewe, Petra Etcetera, Commando, Finbar Saunders And His Double Entendres, Tank Girl, Tale Of One Bad Rat, Mauretania, Captain Britain, Phonogram, Breakfast After Noon, Slaine, Robusters, Summer Of Love, Four Feet From A Rat, Rhapsody Of Love, All Star Superman, The Filth, Hellblazer, Nellyphant, Face Ache, Jackie, Commando, Gentleman Jim, Look-In, Cherubs, Judge Death, Jack Staff, Books Of Magic, Superfly, Goddess, Wired World, and Charley’s War.
The Harrods website, sadly, lacks any information about the exhibition – although it does manage to mention a talk by V for Vendetta artist David Lloyd on September 29 at the Harrods Theatre.
Comic Timing is located at Harrods [map], 87-135 Brompton Road, Knightsbridge, London SW1X 7XL, in the Lower Ground Floor and is directly down the stairs from Door Five, by the Knightsbridge Tube exit. It runs until October 31 and is free!
