Comics Creatrix: 100 Women Making Comics on Sequential
Sequential, the iPad app for digital graphic novels, has announced that it has partnered with House of Illustration to provide a free digital guide for their new exhibition Comix Creatrix: 100 Women Making Comics, as well as digital graphic novels displayed within the exhibition itself.
Comix Creatrix: 100 Women Making Comics is the UK’s largest ever exhibition of work by pioneering female artists working in the comics medium. It presents original artwork from 100 innovative creators – much of it never been seen in public before – and debunks the myth that women have a limited stake in the world of comics. The exhibition recognises the extraordinary variety of comics by women; from observational comedy to surreal fantasy, challenging biography to subversive protest.
The digital guide will be available for free, exclusively on SEQUENTIAL, for the duration of the Comix Creatrix exhibition which runs until May 15, 2016. It features over 150 pages of artwork and information from the exhibition, including work by Audrey Niffenegger, Posy Simmonds, Emma Vieceli, Hannah Berry, Isabel Greenberg, Suzy Varty, and many more.
Sequential have also created a bespoke version of their acclaimed comics software, which will run on iPads in the exhibition and features 15 full-length graphic novels for visitors to browse through – all by women whose work features in Comix Creatrix.
