Love The Beano? Can’t get enough of superheroes? Read The Phoenix? Always wanted to have a go at making your own comic? You must visit the brand new Comics exhibition at Seven Stories.

Seven Stories has gathered together an eclectic mix of original comic art to impress and inspire all comics’ fans. See Desperate Dan and Dennis the Menace as they were drawn in the 1940s and 50s; find old friends like Oor Wullie, Minnie the Minx and Roy of the Rovers; imagine yourself on an adventure with Dan Dare from The Eagle.

The exhibition will feature Captain America, Wonder Woman, Superman and Hulk as drawn by British artist Ian Churchill. Ian works for Marvel and DC Comics, America’s largest comic corporations.

Current British comics creators like Kate Brown, Jamie Smart and Laura Ellen Anderson have prepared storyboards, sketches and 3d models to lend to the exhibition as well as giving Seven Stories’ visitors unique insight into their creative processes.

• Comics: Explore and Create Comic Art at Seven Stories runs until June 2018 at Seven Stories, The National Centre for Children’s Books, Newcastle, NE1 2PQ. More details here: www.sevenstories.org.uk/exhibitions/comics
