Orbital Comics gallery opens its second annual Halloween exhibition

Orbital Comics
in London opens its second annual Halloween exhibition “Magick Eye 2″ today at its gallery space on Great Newport Street. It features work from a host of U.K. comic talent, including Rufus Dayglo, Shaky Kane, Steve Cook, Jason Atomic, Garry Leach, Rian Hughes, Will Simpson, Garry Erskine, Steve Pugh and Bill Ward.

The above flyer art is by Garry Leach, the lesser-spotted artist of Alan Moore’s Marvelman and Warpsmith strips. Few comic artists have published so little but had so much impact upon their medium. Some artists have posted their contributions variously on their blogs or Facebook pages, and there’s a gallery of featured work at Jason Atomic’s Stripped blog. More below, some of which is a little on the NSFW side.

The artwork here isn’t to my personal taste, BUT I did want to chime in here and say that if you’re in London, Orbital Comics is a FANTASTIC store and definitely worth a special visit (they’re only a few blocks away from Covent Garden). When I visited last year the staff was pleasant, professional and helpful (and they let photos of their store be taken with this little stuffed bull looking at things). They have a great selection of back issues including the widest range of older UK comics I’ve found at affordable prices. This is an amazing store!
