Exhibition Preview: Gothic Comics @ The Old Operating Theatre Museum

Keeping you up-to-date on the unusual exhibition spaces in the capital, here's a recommendation for the latest show at The Old Operating Theatre Museum near London Bridge station.

Opening later this month, Tales of Mystery and Medicine by Roberto Lari is a selection of gothic comics by the Italian illustrator and graphic novel artist featuring stories of phantoms and amputations.

Anyone who's been to Southwark's most unsettling space (we blame the pungent smells from the Herb Garret and the grisly old torture medical implements for the queasiness we felt on our last visit) will note this is sure to be a winning combination. A collection of Lari's new and published work, dating back to the 1970s, will be set among the unique architecture of this atmospheric museum, perched in the attic of the 18th Century church of the old St Thomas' Hospital...

Tales of Mystery and Medicine by Roberto Lari is at The Old Operating Theatre Museum, 9A St Thomas' Street, Southwark, SE1 from 19 April to 17 May. Entrance costs £6, £5 for concessions and £3.50 for kids. Visit www.thegarret.org.uk for more information.
