Return to Godhead: A Shaky Kane Exhibition – From August 16 to 31

return-to-godhead

We are delighted to welcome Shaky Kane to the Orbital gallery once again, with an exhibition running from August 16th to 31st, celebrating the launch of Good News Bible: The Complete Deadline Strips of Shaky Kane.

Coming soon from Breakdown Press, Good News Bible collects Shaky’s complete comic strips and illustrations from the ground-breaking British counter-culture magazine Deadline, which between 1988 and 1995 spawned Jamie Hewlett’s Tank Girl and launched dozens of cartoonists’ careers. Drenched in wry wit, Kane’s politically charged, hallucinatory, Jack Kirby-infused punk cartoons crackle with intensity and bombast, remaining as relevant now as when they were first published 30 years ago.
