Frank Quitely: The Art of Comics

About Frank Quitely: The Art of Comics

Responding to the recent global fascination with the comic book and superhero genre, Kelvingrove will host Frank Quitely: The Art of Comics. The exhibition will focus on Glaswegian and Scottish writers and artists such as Frank Quietly, Mark Miller (of KickAss fame) and Grant Morrison (DC Comics Batman and All Star Superman), revealing the amazing influence and contribution Scotland has had on the global industry of comics.

Frank Quitely is the alter ego to Glasgow born artist Vincent Deighan. Deighan took on the mantle of Frank Quitely in his early career to hide his identity, now it is synonymous with iconic characters such as Superman, Batman and the X-Men. A world renowned artist in hot demand he is currently finishing off the epic story Jupiter’s Legacy with fellow Scottish comic book legend, writer Mark Millar.

Frank Quitely: The Art of Comics will appeal to the ongoing public interest in the comic book genre. It will be the largest collection of his work ever displayed. Audiences come face to face with original artwork, with time and space to admire the painstaking detail in every incredible frame. It is bolstered by unique art work from titans of the comic book industry such as Frank Millar and Neil Adams and showcases an original Batman comic strip by the superhero’s creator Bob Kane. Frank Quietly also reflects on the comic strip that inspired it all, from one of Scotland’s most legendary families, the Broons.

Comic book aficionados of all ages will revel in the digital interactives that allow visitors to design their own comic page. There is an opportunity to create your own super hero costume and pose for a special-effects snap of you soaring through the air. Frank Quitely: The Art of Comics is certain to inspire a new generation to take up the mantle.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Frank Quitely: The Art of Comics are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
