“It’s-a me, Mario!”
Love a bit of Mario Kart? Can you tell your Sailor Moon from your Cardcaptor Sakura?
Well, this could be perfect for you. Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture has just announced the launch of an exciting new exhibition celebrating all things to do with comics and animation.
The Comic Craze exhibition will open to the public at Al Qattara Arts Centre in Al Ain on September 14, and will run until October 19.
It will showcase works from the UAE’s flourishing community of comic artists, such as Khalid Bin Hamad, whose sci-fi animation series Empire of N uses the Japanese animated style to reflect on the Emirati identity.
Here’s an idea of some of the eye-catching artworks you can see at the exhibition:
