But the explosion of comic book characters is not only occurring in popular culture, it is showing a big influence in the world of fine art as well.
From now until June 8th, the Strathmore is presenting the exhibition A Shared Universe: The Art of Comic Books. The exhibition showcases 116 original works by professional and student artists at the Mansion at Strathmore.

In addition to admiring the art work, visitors can also come to learn much about the history of comic books through copies of older works, word posters, and videos placed throughout the exhibition.
If you go, you can complete your visit by perusing a collection of comic books offered in a special reading room.
