COMICS UNMASKED: ART AND ANARCHY IN THE UK runs until 19th August 2014 at the British Library and is well worth checking out. In fact it's a must-see exhibition if you have any interest at all in comics. Congratulations are due to curators Paul Gravett and John Harris Dunning and to the British Library. These pictures were taken by Vikki Liogier at the launch party...
