RSLYA’s Comics and Visual Culture Centre, the first of its kind in Russia, was created in 2010. The comics collection has grown greatly since then we now have 4000 items in Russian, French, English, Japanese, German and other languages.
Different comics traditions are represented in the collection: Asian comics (manga and manhwa), American comics and graphic novels, European and Russian comics as well as books on the history and theory of comics and visual culture.
The collection is available for reading in the Room, and the books not marked with a special sticker can be checked out. Valuable books and magazines are stored separately: ask the librarian if you’d like to read them.
If you’d like to create your own comics or improve your drawing skills, you’ll find our light tables very useful.
The Comics Centre hosts comics, photography and illustration exhibitions. Club meetings, workshops for young artists, and events with guest speakers, e.g. artists and publishers, are also held here.
