Comics have seized center stage at the venerable British Library in London this summer in an exhibition celebrating the history of British comics and the work of British creators. Subtitled, 'Art and Anarchy in the UK', the Comics Unmasked exhibition places an emphasis on protest, outsider culture, and anti-authoritarian voices.
Curated by Adrian Edwards, Paul Gravett, and John Harris Dunning, Comics Unmasked draws heavily on the British Library's own collection to establish and define Britain's relationship to the comics art form -- stirring up nostalgia, scandal, and some surprising discoveries along the way.

Alan Moore will join his V for Vendetta co-creator David Lloyd among the ranks of Occupy Comics, the forthcoming Kickstarter-funded anthology project inspired by Occupy Wall Street and its sister protests around the world. The news comes just days after Mo
