30 Days of Comics - day 5


This strip is the first of a few photo comics that I am planning during the #30dayscomics and is a summary of the comics events I have been involved with in Dundee in the past month or so as part of my PhD studies and also as Dundee Contemporary Arts comics intern.

The top panel shows Colin MacNeil, Cam Kennedy and Al Ewing during a signing session at DCA prior to a screening of the new DREDD movie, they also gave a great Q&A session after the movie and you can see part of it here. The chap in front of the blue slide in the next panel is Dave Gibbons, giving a workshop on creating comics at Dundee University as part of Dundee Comics Day. The inset panel is from a strip by Ulf K. which is showing as part of the Comics, Manga & Co: The new culture of German comics exhibition at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design until December 8th. The next panel is from the end of day discussion at Dundee Comics Day and shows Frank Quitely, the back of Rian Hughes head, a partially obscured Grant Morrison, Cameron Stewart, Frazer Irving and Peter Doherty. The final panel is the front cover of a 16 page comic created during a workshop with the Discovery Young Ambassadors at the Discovery Film Festival last weekend. Phew, I need a lie down now...
