Here at DCCS we are celebrating Small Press Day on Saturday 8th July between 12-3pm with a comic and zine fair. Our young Comics Clubbers have been working super hard making new comics and we will be launching Da Awesome Comic: Comics Club Comic Strips volume 2. But that is not all! Below is a sneak peak of the individual zine-style comics that will also be on sale, don’t they look amazing?!? Which ones will you buy?
See here for information on how to get to DCCS.
Happy Holidays everyone! The Comics Clubs at DCCS are taking a summer break so there will be no weekly workshops until 15th August. We will be doing occasional one-off workshops with community groups in Dundee over the summer and we will post the details on our website when we have them – watch this space!
Also, this Saturday we are having a comic fair as part of Small Press Day. Come along to DCCS between 12-3pm on July 8th to pick up lots of awesome comics made by our young creators!
Saturday 8th July is Small Press Day 2017. This is a celebration of self-publishing, DIY culture, and grassroots comics across the U.K and Ireland.
DCCS is taking part by hosting a comic and zine fair from 12-3pm. We will be launching Volume 2 of our Comics Club Comic Strips anthology, with lots of great stories from the young people who attend our after school clubs. You will also have the chance to pick up some individual zine-style comics made by our Comics Clubbers. Come along and meet the next generation of superstar comic creators – we are putting the small into small press! We look forward to seeing you there!
As part of the Dundee Literary Festival in October our Comics Clubbers will be selling their comics at the Ex Libris Book Fair! Young artists from our Tuesday and Wednesday workshops have been working to produce a comic book each, full of their own work, and they will have the chance to display and sell this at the fair! Wildly creative and incredibly talented, we are very proud of our Comics Clubbers and the work they have produced. This is a great chance for you to see the magic which happens at DCCS! Feel free to swing by our stall to check out (and buy) the comics!
This event will be running from 11am to 3pm on Sunday 23rd October in Bonar Hall, and is a free drop-in event. The Ex Libris Fair is run by Ess Publications and this is the third time it has been featured in Dundee Literary Festival! Celebrating talented artists working in book formats, the fair will feature small presses, indie comics creators, artist book makers and – of course – the Comics Clubbers’ books! See you there!
