The exhibition, accompanied throughout by original soundtracks of the DC films and series, will showcase original drawings of DC's characters, as well as iconic scenes and landmarks, from world-renowned artists including Jim Lee, Bob Kane, Neal Adams, Frank Miller and Alex Ross.

The exhibition showcases almost a century of artistic creations that followed the introduction of an innovative new genre imagined by two adolescents from Cleveland, Joe Shuster and Jerry Siegel, the creators of Superman. First introduced in Action Comics #1 in 1938, Superman, the world's first Super Hero, quickly revolutionised the era, influencing art, literature, fashion, TV and film.


The exhibition runs at the O2 until September 2018. Adult tickets are priced from 22.
