Geekery loving pals, here’s a heads up about a punktastic exhibition that takes a personal look at comic books, fandom, & the (super)powerful meanings behind our favourite artists’ work.
John Hyatt, artist, musician, punk professor and one third of the infamous 1980’s post-punk band, The Three Johns, hits HOME’s gallery with a new exhibition pulling together influences from a wide and wonderful range of topics. From post-death to alter ego, magic to metamorphosis, he explores our increasingly unstable and challenging relationships to everything.
A major part of the exhibition is the opportunity to browse through John’s unique comic book collection (while enjoying a limited edition of Hyatt-as-a-blend-of-tea!).
The comics are a vast cross-section of American imports, oddities and quirky British titles of the late 70s, 1980s and early 90s, with a heavy representation from the Marvel stable. From Superman to Thor, Captain American, Fantastic Four, Doctor Strange, X-Men, The New Mutants, Daredevil and The Avengers, to Black Panther, Swamp Thing, Sub-Mariner, The Eternals, Green Lantern and Conan The Barbarian.
