Ink Pot opening

We had a great time at the opening of Ink Pot, our newly-branded comics studio on the evening of February 8th. We also launched Time & Space: An H.G. Wells Comics Anthology, a comic created as part of the University of Dundee’s contribution to the Being Human Festival. The winners of the competition to create a strip for the anthology were in attendance to pick up certificates for their achievement, as well as their own copies of the finished comic.

The was also a DeeCAP session of comics and performance, which included Boney M, cosplay, missing castles, and detective stories, as well as performances of strips from Time & Space. A great night was had by all, as can be seen in the photos below. A big thank you to Cara at media services at the University of Dundee for the photos.
