Exhibition: The Weirdest Comic Book Panels of All Time

We’ve been collecting the most bizarre, disturbing, accidentally hilarious and just plain wrong comic panels that have ever appeared in print.

And now they’re yours to enjoy!



LICAF Live is very excited to present our Virtual Comics Clocktower for 2020!

Created by the formidable force that is Joe and Luke McGarry… we invite you to meet creators, sample their work and then, if you like it, buy some comics, prints and other merchandise.

Check out the exciting range of independent comic artists in our amazing new Comics Clocktower.
