We are delighted to announce FREE comics workshops for kids, in partnership with Rebellion, in Dundee and Glasgow on Free Comic Book Day 2019!

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!

What we’re reading during Book Week Scotland

As it’s Book Week Scotland this week I thought it would be fun to let you know what folks here at DCCS are reading currently. There will be a series of posts this week kicking off with our Coordinator Damon.

“I’ve been catching up with my comics reading recently after finishing my PhD. I picked up a few free comics at Kingdom Comics during Halloween Comic Fest, including The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, You Choose The Story #1. It’s funny and irreverent, and you get to chose how Squirrel Girl deals with her adventures, such as battling Swarm, a bad guy MADE OF BEES! It made me want to read more Squirrel Girl!”
