Comics Unmasked | Lawless Nelly

Lawless Nelly

Jamie Hewlett created the poster girl for our Comics Unmasked exhibition.

This moody, caped comic heroine is seen equipped with hip-flask and knuckle-duster.

The name Lawless Nelly was picked by Jamie following a  British Library staff competition, and was inspired by Charles Dickens's mistress Ellen Ternan, known affectionately as 'Nelly’.
