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!

Dundee Comics Creative Space is excited to be hosting the first ever Laydeez Do Comics Dundee on 31st May at DCCS HQ from 4-5pm and 6-8pm.

LDCD is a student-led initiative in partnership with the Scottish Centre for Comics Studies. Laydeez Do Comics is a women-led forum started by Dr. Nicola Streeten and Dr. Sarah Lightman to support UK-based comics creators. This event is open to all and welcome a variety of perspectives and identities.

The evening will start with a practical workshop on memory, led Rebecca Horner from 4-5pm. After a short break, we will reconvene at 6pm for a talk by Dr. Golnar Nabizadeh focusing on the themes of her new book, Representation and Memory in Graphic Novels (2019), followed by a panel of comics scholars and creators discussing various aspects of memory and comics. The panel will be moderated by Ashling Larkin and will include Hailey Austin, Megan Sinclair, and Catriona Laird. The evening will conclude with a wine and cake reception and a chance to discuss the talks with our presenters and other attendees.
