British Comic Book Artists Visit Library of Congress
Ahead of the Baltimore Comic-Con this weekend, British comic book artists visited the Library of Congress in Washington to see the original artwork from the first appearance of Spider-Man in Amazing Fantasy 15.

In the 1980s, a number of British writers and artists started producing work for American comics and brought a fresh take that appealed to fans and critics alike. This has been coined the ‘British Invasion’. To celebrate this longstanding theme, the British Embassy will be exhibiting at the 13th annual Baltimore Comic-Con, showcasing what is GREAT about the comic book, science-fiction and creative industries in Great Britain and Northern Ireland. British creativity in the industry is kept alive today by creators including Brian Bolland, Mark Buckingham, and Barry Kitson. All three will speak on a panel themed around the ‘British Invasion.’
