Along with the beginning of March the National Museum in Krakow greeted us with new exciting exhibition: Comics Now!
“Who is Bezrobotny Froncek [Jobless Froncek]? Was he once more popular than Mickey Mouse? Where was Koziołek Matołek [Silly Billy] going? Whose dog is Filuś, and what is Miluś the dragon afraid of? Can a turtle be a symbol of a superhero? You will find answers to these and other questions at the exhibition
Comics Now!, open from 2 March until 22 July 2018..”
– says official description from Museum’s website.
The exhibition takes you for a journey into over 150 years of Polish and European comic stories. You will get a chance to see unique magazines people used to crack up to during war time, beautiful illustrations in its first original edition as well as many of beloved comic characters in form of toy figures, stickers or even candy wrappers.
Just as comics themselves, the display attracts with its colours and joyful atmosphere. The interactivity and design will for sure make you feel as part of the comic world.
And if you need any more encouragement, let’s just mention that the exhibition was designed by Martyna, a receptionist from your favourite Mosquito Hostel 🙂
