He showed some interesting examples of western comics throughout the last century and up until the present day, showcasing their sometimes prejudiced and politically motivated stories.
Some really interesting and impressive art and artists were on show, for example:
Afterwards we had the chance to check out some of the V&A's exhibits...and all the comics/sequential stories hiding there!
