The National Library of Scotland in Edinburgh will be putting on an exhibition on the historical development of comics and graphic novels from their earliest beginnings to their modern contemporary diversity entitled Comics Grow Up!
Running during April and May 2008, and building on the expected heavy local advertising of the new The Strange Case Of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde graphic novel by Alan Grant and Cam Kennedy for the One Book - One Edinburgh reading campaign, the exhibition is described as revealing the vitality of the current Scottish writers and artists at work in the medium.
The National Library of Scotland purchased the original artwork that Cam Kennedy produced for the Kidnapped graphic novel in 2007 and it is anticipated that this will be on display.
• More information can be obtained from the National Library of Scotland's website.
