Parallel to Loncon is an exhibition of British comics at The British Library, covering everything from the Victorian Illustrated London News through Oz Magazine to the works of Alan Moore and Grant Morrison. Well, covering almost everything. I thought there were some suprising omissions.

In which the writer reveals he knows far more about British comics than he thought he did. )

Sorry. Just had to get that off my chest. I don't even consider myself an expert on British comics yet I was surprised by the gaps in the exhibition (and therefore the missing influences behind some of the work they do show.) I have the sense the curators were playing favourites rather than try to tell a coherent story about the development of comics of adults or whatever it was they were trying to achieve.

Don't get me wrong - if you are interested in any facet of comics at all it's well worth seeing. But don't expect it to be comprehensive.
