    Current Wonder Woman artist Liam Sharp is to be honoured in his home city of Derby with a special exhibition documenting his comics career later this year.

    Currently living and working in California, Derby-born writer and artist Liam Sharp is best known for his highly detailed comic work. His latest series, drawing Wonder Woman for top US comics publisher DC, has seen Liam receive worldwide acclaim.

    This exhibition at Derby’s Museum and Art Gallery, made possible with support from DC Entertainment, charts his 30 year career in comics, illustrating characters such as Judge Dredd, Death’s Head II, the Hulk, Spider-Man and iconic DC characters such as Superman and now Wonder Woman, as well as writing and illustrating his own unique creations.

    Liam is also the co-founder of the award-winning progressive digital storytelling company Madefire, taking words and pictures and adding sound and motion. Madefire recently produced the world’s first VR comics experience.

    Heading to the Kelvingrove Museum, Glasgow in April is Frank Quitely: The Art of Comics, running 1st April to 1st October 2017.

    The exhibition at Kelvingrove will be the largest collection of his work every displayed, offering the opportunity to get up close and personal with the painstaking detail in every iconic frame.

    There will also be original artwork from other titans of the comic book industry such as Frank Millar and Neal Adams, as well as an original Batman comic strip by his creator, Bob Kane. And of course the exhibition wouldn’t be complete with including the strip that inspired it all – “The Broons” from the Sunday Post.

    The Art of Comics also shows influence and context for this genre from the historical, with the universal structure of the heroic myth and the Scottish tradition of storytelling, through to the modern, with current affairs and technological development.

    Superman by Frank Quitely

    Frank Quitely is the alter ego to Glasgow born artist Vincent Deighan, who took on the name in his early career to hide his identity while he drew for the Scottish publication Electric Soup. Now the name Frank Quitely is synonymous with iconic characters such as Superman, Batman and the X-Men.

    A world renowned artist in hot demand he’s currently finishing off the epic story Jupiter’s Legacy published by Image Comics with fellow Scottish comic book legend, writer Mark Millar.

    Alongside the comic art in the exhibition we’re told there will be digital interactives, where visitors can discover the process of drawing a comic page or create their own super hero costume and get their photo taken flying through space.

      2000AD is Britain’s cult sci-fi comic, and has been at the cutting edge of contemporary pop culture since 1977. It’s a multi-award winning cocktail of explosive sci-fi and fantasy, infused with a mean streak of irony and wry black humour. Imaginative, hard-hitting stories and eye-popping art have made 2000 AD essential reading for its legion of fiercely loyal fans for nearly 30 years now. For more info visit www.2000adonline.com

      Heading to the Kelvingrove Museum, Glasgow in April is Frank Quitely: The Art of Comics, running 1st April to 1st October 2017.

      The exhibition at Kelvingrove will be the largest collection of his work every displayed, offering the opportunity to get up close and personal with the painstaking detail in every iconic frame.

      There will also be original artwork from other titans of the comic book industry such as Frank Millar and Neal Adams, as well as an original Batman comic strip by his creator, Bob Kane. And of course the exhibition wouldn’t be complete with including the strip that inspired it all – “The Broons” from the Sunday Post.

      The Art of Comics also shows influence and context for this genre from the historical, with the universal structure of the heroic myth and the Scottish tradition of storytelling, through to the modern, with current affairs and technological development.

      Frank Quitely is the alter ego to Glasgow born artist Vincent Deighan, who took on the name in his early career to hide his identity while he drew for the Scottish publication Electric Soup. Now the name Frank Quitely is synonymous with iconic characters such as Superman, Batman and the X-Men.

      A world renowned artist in hot demand he’s currently finishing off the epic story Jupiter’s Legacy published by Image Comics with fellow Scottish comic book legend, writer Mark Millar.

      Alongside the comic art in the exhibition we’re told there will be digital interactives, where visitors can discover the process of drawing a comic page or create their own super hero costume and get their photo taken flying through space.

    There will also be original artwork from other titans of the comic book industry such as Frank Millar and Neal Adams, as well as an original Batman comic strip by his creator, Bob Kane. And of course the exhibition wouldn’t be complete with including the strip that inspired it all – “The Broons” from the Sunday Post.

    The Art of Comics also shows influence and context for this genre from the historical, with the universal structure of the heroic myth and the Scottish tradition of storytelling, through to the modern, with current affairs and technological development.

    Frank Quitely is the alter ego to Glasgow born artist Vincent Deighan, who took on the name in his early career to hide his identity while he drew for the Scottish publication Electric Soup. Now the name Frank Quitely is synonymous with iconic characters such as Superman, Batman and the X-Men.

    A world renowned artist in hot demand he’s currently finishing off the epic story Jupiter’s Legacy published by Image Comics with fellow Scottish comic book legend, writer Mark Millar.

    Alongside the comic art in the exhibition we’re told there will be digital interactives, where visitors can discover the process of drawing a comic page or create their own super hero costume and get their photo taken flying through space.

    There will also be original artwork from other titans of the comic book industry such as Frank Millar and Neal Adams, as well as an original Batman comic strip by his creator, Bob Kane. And of course the exhibition wouldn’t be complete with including the strip that inspired it all – “The Broons” from the Sunday Post.

    Frank Quitely is the alter ego to Glasgow born artist Vincent Deighan, who took on the name in his early career to hide his identity while he drew for the Scottish publication Electric Soup. Now the name Frank Quitely is synonymous with iconic characters such as Superman, Batman and the X-Men.
