Tell us a bit about yourselves!
D: I’m David, I’m 11 and I’m from Blairgowrie but I live in Dundee now.
M: I’m Mia, I’m 11 and I’m from Wormit.
How long have you been coming to Comics Club?
D: Since the beginning, in March! I saw about the DCCS on the news on TV. I came because I like reading comics so I wanted to have a chance to make my own.
M: I’ve been coming for a few months. My dad used to work in DC Thomson and I’m interested in comics so I came along! My dad heard about it and told me.
What are you working on at the moment?
M: Pugtato Time! It’s basically about a pug who is a potato, and her adventures. It’s for the fair at the Literary festival in October.
D: The fruit family – so far I’ve got Banana Steven, he’s the first in the family.
What are your favourite comics?
M: I like The Beano because it’s funny.
D: Deadpool because I watched the movie and liked it.
What’s the best thing about coming to the DCCS?
D: Drawing lots of fun comics! And getting to make your own.
M: I just like comics!
What else do you like doing apart from Comics Club?
D: I go to Scouts, there’s not a comics badge in Scouts yet but there should be!
M: I do Scouts and swimming.
What would you say about Comics Club to people who might want to come?
M: You can express your feelings by drawing them!
D: It’s really good! Damon and the artists help with your ideas and also Damon’s funny.
Finally, what’s your favourite joke?
D: What’s a cat’s favourite colour? Purrrple!
