Last month, Bleeding Cool talked about a new initiative by British comic book artists in response to the widespread publicity concernng the new Lichtenstein exhibition at Tate Modern in London. Including Dave Gibbons talking about artistic endevour, intent, credit and the human condition on the TV.

And how the plan was to create new works, inspired by the original comic art that so inspired Lichtenstein, but properly credited with the original sourcemand any funds raised being donated to the HERO charity to help comic creators in need.

A massive print of Dave Gibbons’ piece above, entitled WHAAT?, with the inspiration credited to Irv Novick, is being exhibited for one day next Saturday at the Central Saint Martin College of Art and Design as part of this year’s Comica Festival. It’ll be so big you’ll be able to see all those red dots are dollar signs. Smaller prints will also be available for sale.

There will be many other exhibits, sales and vents at Comic Festival that day, running from 11am to 7pm. See you there?
