As we previously reported, Comix Creatrix: Women Making Comics is the UK’s largest ever survey of the work of pioneering female artists working in the comics medium – and web site Ents24 is running a competition  to win tickets.

Comix Creatrix presents the work of 100 innovative creators and debunks the myth that women have a limited stake in the world of comics. Highlighting 21st century work by British creators, the exhibition will also recognise ground-breaking works from the 19th and 20th centuries, and will highlight the influence of international practitioners on the British scene.

Co-curated by Olivia Ahmad and Paul Gravett, the exhibition recognises the extraordinary variety of comics by women; from observational comedy to surreal fantasy, challenging biography to subversive protest.

• Comix Creatrix is at The House of Illustration in London from 5th February – 15th May 2016 (full event detail here). For your chance to win a pair of tickets to see the exhibition on a date of your choice, just answer the simple question on this page on Ents 24
