Frank Quitely: The Art of Comics

Comic Heroes - - Shapers of Worlds -

It is quite an ac­co­lade for a comic artist’s work to be cel­e­brated in such a dis­tin­guished setting, but it makes sense that Quitely’s ca­reer is com­mended in this way. Start­ing off with his work on Scot­tish in­de­pen­dent comic Elec­tric

Soup in the early 1990s, it makes its way through his work on Judge Dredd Megazine, All

Star Su­per­man, Flex Men­tallo and X-Men, cov­er­ing his more re­cent col­lab­o­ra­tions with Mark Mil­lar on Jupiter’s Legacy. We get to see his pen­cils, his cover work and also a sense of how he has evolved as an artist. There is some­thing dy­namic and idio­syn­cratic about his work so you know in­stantly that it is some­thing drawn by him. ‘Frank Quitely: The Art of Comics’ gives a glimpse into the mind­set of one of modern comics’ most dis­tinc­tive artists.

The ex­hi­bi­tion will be open un­til 1 Oc­to­ber at Kelv­in­grove Art Gallery and Mu­seum, Glas­gow, with prices rang­ing from £3-7.
