Free Comic Book Day on 4th May aims to encourage new readers to visit their local comic book store and Rebellion has a host of titles supporting this global celebration of comics!
To mark the release of its Funny Pages and Cor!! & Buster Special titles, 2000 AD and Dundee Comic Creative Space are taking over the studio at the Gallery of Modern Art in Glasgow, as well as DCCS HQ in the Vision building on Dundee waterfront, with special workshop events on 4th May.
Both running from 1.30pm to 3.30pm on Saturday 4th May, the workshops will give kids of all ages the chance to have a go at creating their own comics based on characters from the legendary titles Cor!! and Buster!
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.
We are very pleased to welcome Tom Foster as a guest to this afternoon’s Comics Club. He will be showing our young creators how he puts together his comics pages. He is currently working for 2000AD among others – check out his first 2000AD cover featuring Judge Dredd from earlier this year!
