Frank Quitely: The Art of Comics
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.
