Set for release on Friday 18th March, BHP Comics are talking an in-depth look at the history of comics with their latest release, a deluxe format box of books entitled COMIC INVENTION.

Launched to accompany the University of Glasgow’s Hunterian Art Gallery and Museum Exhibition, this treasure trove is filled with a variety of goodies from a facsimile of the world’s very first comic all the way to a study of arguably the greatest comic artist on the planet today, Frank Quitely.

The release features over 180 pages across its five elements, all housed in a rather swish-looking Deluxe Art Box.

The five elements covered are;

– Comic Invention: An introduction to the Worlds First Comic
– Comics & Culture
– The Invention of Comics
– The Art of Frank Quitely
– The Glasgow Looking Glass Facsimile

The release is limited to 1,000 copies, and can be pre-ordered from the BHP Comics Website.

With an in-depth analysis of how the art form developed over the years – complete with fantastic illustrations and images including the examples of works by Roy Liechtenstein, Andy Warhol, Picasso and rare images from ancient manuscripts – this is one purchase that no self-respecting comic fan should be without.
