Retro Marvel Now – The Art of Lee Bradley will be taking place at the Forge Mill Museum in Redditch,
between 7th March until 12th April; an event in association with The Birmingham Comics Festival season
that is taking place in the heart of The Midlands.
This is the first exhibition to be held featuring the work of illustrator Lee Bradley and will be comprised of art featuring characters from and influenced by the work of Marvel Comics, one of the leading comic book companies in the USA whose superhero movies are such blockbuster hits!
Renowned for his work in the trading and collector’s card world, it should come as no surprise that Bradley’s art has been featured in such popular series as Marvel’s Greatest Battles, Women of Marvel, Retro Marvel and Marvel Premiere, and will be seen in forthcoming Avengers: 'Age of Ultron' card series this year. Bradley’s influences are the classic Marvel and DC artwork of his own childhood, alongside a love for the characters and creations from popular 80s & 90s televison and
Those who’ve experienced the gallery of artwork prior to its official opening describe it as “A great
opportunity to see Lee's powerful and vibrant work close up.” While the Retro Marvel Now exhibition will
be running consistently until 12th April, those attending the Forge Museum may also have the opportunity to meet the artist themselves, for Lee will also be conducting a number of workshops for local kids over the period.
Retro Marvel Now – The Art of Lee Bradley is making living history today!

What can I say about this Show? Well you remember that song or rather chant "It's coming home, its coming home". Well that's how I feel about this show, or rather "I'm coming home" One of the most if not THE Most Friendly, Fun & Joyous occasions to be an invited Guest to.
This year they have taken on a big move to Southampton from Bournemouth. I am going to miss the last venue as I have some great memories there, though I am looking forward to building new ones at the new location.
They have a stellar Guest list including me of course, but also Sylvester McCoy, Sophie Aldred, Robert Duncan McNeill, James Cosmo, The irepresible Julian Seagar and many more!
Plus most importantly they will be raising money for the Teenage Cancer Trust.
Make sure you come along for the day or two,
