From May 1st – May 14th this year, Orbital Comics will be hosting COVER VERSIONS: When Music & Comics Collide!

12 comic artists have been tasked with taking an album of their choosing, and creating a new piece of cover art for it: It could be their favourite album, one they listen to whilst working in the studio that often provides inspiration, or an album that they secretly think could benefit from a better sleeve!

The finished pieces will be displayed at 12″ record sleeve size, and when the exhibition closes, a short print run of each piece will be made available for purchase, with proceeds going to Brain Tumour Research.

In the lead up the show, the blog will be launching on 1st April, with articles & interviews on the crossover between comics & music, with a number of events to be announced coinciding with the exhibition, including a launch night on 1st May!

So, stay tuned to this page, as next Monday, we announce the first 3 artists, and the album’s they will be tackling!

In the meantime, please follow our Twitter, Tumblr & Instagram accounts for information, and pieces from the long history that music and comics have together!
