From their early incarnations as sequential satires and newspaper strips to today’s countercultural zines, webcomics and award-winning graphic novels, comics have evolved into a complex and powerful literary form. Women have been present throughout this evolution, creating some of the most defining and provocative works of the medium.

Comix Creatix will present original artworks from graphic novels, comics and zines of over 100 innovative female creators, including: Alison Bechdel, Angie Mills, Donya Todd, Eleni Kalorkoti, Isabel Greenberg, Nadine Redlich, Posy Simmonds, Tove Jansson, between many others.

The exhibition will be accompanied by SEQUENTIAL, a free digital guide to the exhibition featuring over 100 pages of content, as well as presenting a selection of full-length digital graphic novels on IPads in the exhibition itself.
