The cornucopia of comics

Colourful and creative - but also subversive and disturbing at times - the diverse world of comic books is being celebrated at the British Library this summer. Comics Unmasked looks at mainstream and underground creations - from early British pioneers to more recent favourites.

Take a tour with guest curators - Paul Gravett and John Harris Dunning.

Comics Unmasked can be seen at the British Library, London, until 19 August 2014. Parental guidance advised.
