(with thanks to Matthew Badham): With the opening of the Live Lines Exhibtion in Richmond, Bridgeen Gillespie has an article in the PDF-delivered Verbal Magazine this week, revealing why comics aren’t just for boys anymore – if they ever were, given the sales of girls comics in the pat – and gives her guide to what’s best, by and for girls, in print and on the web.
Live Lines showcases original artwork and comics by the cream of the UK underground and independent scene, presenting this dynamic, accessible, yet marginalised medium to a wider public. This exhibition also features work by young people as part of our Manga Lives project.
Sadly, details of the exhibition are incorrect at the end of the item in the Magazine: here’s the correct information:
Live Line Comics Open 1 March – 12 April Free admission
