Dundee is both the cultural and physical home of comic books in Britain. The home of DC Thompson, publishers of The Beano, The Dandy, and strips like The Broons and Oor Wullie, it’s where many British comic creators honed their trade.
And now a special studio is opening t try and help find the next wave.
The Dundee Comics Creative Space (DCCS) will officially open next year. It was launched and previewed this week with comic creators Dave Gibbons, Tanya Roberts, Norrie Miller and Letty Wilson.
Developed with the University of Dundee and Dundee Place Partnership, it will create a place for cartoonists to work on their projects, with support and advice from experts.
I don’t suppose anyone fancies opening something closer to, i don’t know Kingston Vale, London?
