We were super excited to receive a parcel from Comic Swap this week. A few weeks ago we sent off some copies of Da Awesome Comic and in return we were sent 5 comics from other comics clubs around the country. The five amazing comics were:
We decided that it would be really great for our Comics Clubbers to read the comics and then draw some short strips as reviews. See the wonderful results below!
This Friday come join us at DCCS for the launch of the very first Ink Pot comics anthology – the wonderfully titled INKTHOLOGY.
INKTHOLOGY is themed around the magical properties of ink and each artist and writer has contributed an original stand alone story. The collection features Ink Pot artists alongside guest spots from other artists closely associated with Ink Pot and DCCS.
From 7pm come along and meet the artists and purchase your very own copy of INKTHOLOGY. Special events on the night include DeeCAP comics performances with live music and a special Speech Bubble comics panel. There will also be the chance to see an exhibition of art from the comic curated by Zu Dominiak.
*Please be aware that that DCCS currently has no available parking at the Vision Building*
Rescheduled due to #SNOWMAGGEDON
Wednesday 11th April 7-8.30pm
JOIN US AT DCCS for a unique event & live drawing session with comics legend Cam Kennedy!
Cam will be going through his creative process LIVE at Dundee Comics Creative Space in the Vision Building and will give us unique insights into his career!
From his website bio:
“Following work in commercial art in his hometown of Glasgow, Kennedy went freelance and worked as an illustrator on D.C. Thomson’s Commando, a well-known British war comic, between 1967 and 1972, before leaving comics altogether to become a professional fine artist. Kennedy’s work has been described as gritty, energetic, chunky and raw.”
After returning to comics in 1978, he later worked on 2000AD, including stints on Judge Dredd and Rogue Trooper, Star Wars comics, and the creator-owned Vietnam War-inspired science fiction fantasy The Light and Darkness War with Tom Veitch.
