I enjoyed the exhibition of political comic artworks ‘Ctrl.Alt.Shift Unmasks Corruption’ at the Contemporary Urban Centre. The artists show great drawing skill along with some interesting narrative.
Also picked up a copy of the book which accompanies the touring show at a bargain £3. (You can buy it online for £4.99)
