Exhibition: The science of comics (2013)

To celebrate the launch of Asteroid Belter we curated a dual-site exhibition. In Newcastle City Library we focussed on the science of how comics are made, with original artwork and process pages from our contributors and our young Science FACT-ion competition winners. At Newcastle University we took a closer look at some of the scientific objects – ancient fossils, gory samples, and shrunken polystyrene cups – that helped inspire comics in Asteroid Belter.
