Part of Dundee Literary Festival, Dundee Comics Day (actually weekend – Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th of October) exists to “draw attention to Dundee’s important role in the history of comics”. Past Comic Days have included talks from Warren Ellis, Alan Davis and Bryan Talbot. And it’s designed to appeal to everyone – from those interested in comics to academics.
The event features Grant Morrison and a band of co-conspirators including Frank Quitely (New X-Men, We3, All-Star Superman), Frazer Irving (Batman and Robin, Seven Soldiers, Rian Hughes (Yesterday’s Tomorrows) and Cameron Stewart (Batman and Robin, Seaguy), who will talk about “their experience working with Grant, as well as discussing their wider careers and future projects”.
Tickets are available HERE.
