I had a visit to the Science Museum in London last week.
Very interesting place to see, but then what a bonus: a Frank Hampson wall!
Four original pages of Dan Dare. They were all fantastic.
And then later on, more: an Enki Bilal wall.
Eight pages from La Femme Piege.
In the space exploration area, they have a display based on Amazing Stories magazine.
They currently have an exhibition with artwork by Suzanne Treister called Hexen 2.0. I can see it making a good underground comic.
The shop had a couple of nice comic books; Robot City by Paul Collicutt and Robot by Andrzej Klimowski and Danusia Schejbal.
There was even a display on a book called The 1950s Kitchen by Kathryn Perry that was open at a page with this four panel strip. Always interesting to see comics used in advertising.
So go along to check all this stuff out. Even without the comic bonuses, it’s a great museum. Just look at the layout of Making the Modern World hall. Really impressive.
