Comic. Dreams and History

View of the exhibition «Comic. Dreams and history» © Fundación la Caixa

The exhibition takes visitors on a journey through the entire history of the comic genre, from its beginnings to the present day, and brings together more than 300 original pages by the most famous cartoonists.

With a surprising set design, the exhibition underlines the dual status of comics: as a tool for reflection on the present and the future; and as a powerful means of creating parallel realities and imaginary worlds. It showcases more than 350 pieces, including work by the great universal masters and the classics of Spanish comic art.

It features pages from some of the most famous characters or comics, such as "The Yellow Kid" by Richard Felton Outcault (considered the first modern comic), "Tintin" by Hergé, "Flash Gordon" by Alex Raymond, "The Spirit" by Will Eisner, "Sin City" by Frank Miller, "The Amazing Spider-man" by John Romita, "Watchmen" by Dave Gibbons and Alan Moore, "Arzach" by Moebius, "Corto Maltese" by Hugo Pratt and "Mafalda" by Quino.

In addition, prominent Spanish authors such as Paco Roca, María Medem or Ana Galvañ have created works expressly for this exhibition, which is completed with first editions of magazines and books, as well as digital reproductions.
