This July we are running a FREE two-week Comics Summer School for 8-14 year olds! This Summer Special is aimed at young people who have NOT yet had a chance to attend the regular DCCS Comics Clubs.

There will be comics jams, zine making, character creation, comics reading, and more! You will learn about and create your very own comic strips!

The summer special runs each week from Monday to Thursday 10am-12pm from 15th – 25th July.

All materials are provided.

Please see our eventbrite page to book a place.

Laydeez Do Comics Dundee will be hosting an event to celebrate the women of Commando Comics on Friday 5 July from 6-8pm. We will kick the evening off with former Commando editor Calum Laird speaking about the history of Commando and the women involved. Then we will have a panel of the first women to write for Commando in 30 years – Hailey Austin, Georgia Standen Battle, and Kate Dewar – to give an inside look at Commando and talk about their experiences as women in comics.

We will be back at the Dundee Comics Creative Space, Unit 10 in The Vision Building.

And just a heads up – we still have some of the beautiful totes and dishtowels from LDC headquarters. So if you want one before they go, don’t forget to bring cash with you.

This promises to be an unforgettable night of daring pilots, train explosions, risky military operations, and laydeez doing comics!
