We asked various comic artists and illustrators to create their own panels from Wally Wood’s “22 Panels That Always Work”, which would then be put together for the 22 Panels 2014 poster. A number of these panels have been used to create some wonderful flyers, designed by John Spelling. Here is Henry Flint's “Reflection”. We will be revealing the final poster soon!

Book Tickets for Comic Storytelling Part 1 with Ron Tiner

Tickets are now available for Part 1 of Ron Tiner’s Comic Storytelling on Saturday 25 October at 11:00.

What makes good comic book art? It’s not just a matter of accurate drawing. Every story makes unique demands on a narrative artist, and his understanding of what makes a good story – as opposed to a dull sequence of events – is what makes the difference between a comic book that you simply read and forget, and one that sets your imagination alight, and you go back to time and again.
