Another rainy day in the North of England so we decided to take a trip to Kirleatham Museum not far from where we live, we'd seen they were showing an exhibition of artwork by Middlesbrough born artist Robert Nixon. Robert worked on a whole bunch of comics including Dandy, Beano, Whoopee, Monster Fun, and Shiver & Shake, drawing characters such as Lord Snooty, Roger the Dodger, Korky the Cat, Frankie Stein and his own creations Kid Kong, Gums, King Arthur and his Frights of the Round Table and Ivy the Terrible. Robert also painted non comic book work such as landscapes and some Fantasy Art.
It was really cool seeing his original comic book pages and cover art etc... for many comics that I grew up reading in the 70's.
Kirleatham Museum is free to the public.
