If you’re a Marvel fanatic, then head over to the Shot Tower in Melbourne Central next month and shower your eyes with 80 years worth of Marvel art.
From July 5, Marvel will be celebrating its 80th year anniversary with an exhibition called Marvel: Journey of Heroes, which honours iconic characters that have been brought to life by Marvel’s vivid storytelling. So, if you’re a bit fuzzy on the Marvelverse but enjoy the odd Avengers movie or two, this might be a great chance to get up to speed on all the characters.
Touching on each decade of Marvel’s 80-year history, with original artwork on display, Marvel: Journey of Heroes is created by a range of local artists including Patrick Brown, Jon Sommariva, David Yardin, Ben Templesmith and Wayne Nichols.
New York Times best-selling comic book author Tom Taylor (Spider-Man, X-Men, Wolverine, Iron Man, Star Wars) is the official spokesperson for the exhibition.
“This celebration is a huge milestone not only for Marvel but also the comic book industry as a whole,” Mr. Taylor says. “The characters brought to life in these comics are household names in Australia and the world, and it’s exciting that we get to take a step back, explore its history and honour the comics that started it all.”
So let your inner child run free at the Shot Tower from July 5 until September. Don’t miss it.
