If you're at all interested in comics or graphic novels and within reach of London, there are three events to put into your diary.
COMICS UNMASKED - BRITISH LIBRARY
The first one is at the British Library, Euston Road and it's on now until August 19, 2014. Here's what they say about it:
"Our major exhibition Comics Unmasked: Art and Anarchy in the UK is now open and there's a wonderful buzz in the building and beyond. I bet you didn't even know we had comic books in our collection! Well, this is your chance to see over 200 exhibits - from a 1470 medieval comic to original artwork and manuscripts of Kick-Ass, Sandman and Batman and Robin.
Whether you're a comic artist, a fashion designer or filmmaker - there's something to be inspired by at this exhibition." More INFORMATION.
