KA-BOOM: the art of creating comics - opening on Monday 30 May

KA-BOOM! The art of creating comics
30 May 2022 - Spring 2023

Created by the Story Museum in partnership with The Phoenix, Rebellion and Beano

KA-BOOM! takes visitors on an interactive journey through the comic-making process in
order to encourage the next generation of comic artists and writers. A giant pop-up comic
strip created in conjunction with comic artist Neill Cameron will take over the museum’s
temporary exhibition space, revealing what makes a great comic and giving children the skills
to make their own.

Visitors will be guided through the comic process - from developing characters and plotting,
to drawing, colouring and lettering - with the help of some familiar faces including Dennis and Gnasher, Minnie the Minx, Cadet Judge Dredd and Bunny VS Monkey, as well as tips from experts including Ramzee, Laura Howell and Jamie Smart. Also on display throughout the exhibition will be original artwork showcasing the rich history of British comic book making, including artist sketches from the 1950s to the present day.

Drawing inspiration from the much-loved comic trope of the Editor-in-Chief, visitors will be
led through the exhibition by its newly appointed octopus editor. Octoboom was created by
9-year-old Eddie Tilling as part of The Story Museum’s monthly Comic Club, in collaboration
with Neill Cameron.
