Our pals at Comics Club Blog asked us to do their Comics Challenge for November. We thought it was a great chance to share the workshop that we have been doing for the Being Human Festival and inspired by Gulliver’s Travels. Click on the links to try it out for yourself, and while you’re there check out all the cool stuff they have been up to!

Happy Holidays everyone! The Comics Clubs at DCCS are taking a summer break so there will be no weekly workshops until 15th August. We will be doing occasional one-off workshops with community groups in Dundee over the summer and we will post the details on our website when we have them – watch this space!
Also, this Saturday we are having a comic fair as part of Small Press Day. Come along to DCCS between 12-3pm on July 8th to pick up lots of awesome comics made by our young creators!
Saturday 8th July is Small Press Day 2017. This is a celebration of self-publishing, DIY culture, and grassroots comics across the U.K and Ireland.
DCCS is taking part by hosting a comic and zine fair from 12-3pm. We will be launching Volume 2 of our Comics Club Comic Strips anthology, with lots of great stories from the young people who attend our after school clubs. You will also have the chance to pick up some individual zine-style comics made by our Comics Clubbers. Come along and meet the next generation of superstar comic creators – we are putting the small into small press! We look forward to seeing you there!

Over the last couple of weeks we asked our Comics Clubbers to come up with their own Christmas comics. As usual we were completely bowled over by the imagination and creativity in their comics. We thought this strip by Callum Bradley aged 10 was too good not to share! Although it is titled Best Christmas Ever! it might not be what you expect.
Beware Bad Santa!
