In Pictures: Treasury of British Comics Exhibition – Orbital Comics, London

Here’s a few snaps from the Treasury of British Comics exhibition currently on at Orbital Comics in central London.

The art is being exhibited courtesy of 2000AD publisher Rebellion Publishing in a celebration of their imprint, The Treasury of British Comics.

Rebellion have been lovingly breathing life into some of the most classic British comics of the 1970s and 80s, and in honour of these revived books they’ll be pulling back the curtain to reveal a rich variety of original art, displayed lovingly on Orbital Comics walls.

Be warned – I went on a Tuesday afternoon and the space was closed because they were sorting out all the new comics ready for getting them on the shelves on (new comics) Wednesday. Pick another time…
