The name Frank Quitely has become synonymous with such iconic characters as Batman, Superman and the X-Men, and Scottish comics book artist Vincent Deighan – the man behind the pen name – has become an artist of similarly titanic proportions. Collaborations with such greats as Grant Morrison and Neil Gaiman, along with contracts with the two giants of comics publishing, DC and Marvel, have marked Quitely’s path to the top of his game.

An exhibition at Kelvingrove Museum and Gallery which runs until beginning of October charts this trajectory, showcasing the largest collection Quitely’s ever displayed, as well as presenting a selection of his influences and inspiration, from an original Batman comic strip to the Broons. Frank will be joining us for a really very special event to present the book published to go alongside the exhibition. We’ll be transforming the shop into a mini gallery itself for Frank to chat all things comics with writer and illustrator Sasha de Buyl-Pisco, and of course to answer any questions you yourself might bring along.

This event is free but booking is essential.
