Beyond Dredd & Watchmen: the Art of John Higgins

About

The first major retrospective of the work of Liverpool-born artist John Higgins, who found global success as a comic book artist and writer for 2000AD, DC and Marvel, is to be exhibited at the University of Liverpool’s Victoria Gallery & Museum.

`Beyond Dredd & Watchmen: the Art of John Higgins’ will provide a glimpse into the extraordinary imagination of John Higgins – an output which crosses the boundaries between comics, graphic novels, cinema, television, advertising and music.

The exhibition will feature Higgins’ original art displayed alongside examples of the work of the artists and science fiction classics that inspired him.

`Beyond Dredd & Watchmen: the Art of John Higgins’ opens on Friday, 10 March 2017 and runs until October 2017 at the University of Liverpool’s Victoria Gallery & Museum.
