More Scottish Comics Events

As the afterglow of Hi-Ex slowly fades we have some advance notice of two other comics events in Scotland.

The fourth Dundee Comics Day will be held at Dundee University as part of the Dundee Literary Festival on Sunday 27 June 2010. Previous speakers on the day have included Alan Grant, Warren Ellis, Bryan Talbot and Paul Gravett as seen in our reviews of the 2009 and 2008 events. This year’s guests will be announced in due course.

Also returning is the Oxfam Comic Book Event which will be held in Edinburgh’s MacDonald Road Library on Saturday 17 July 2010 beginning at 1pm. Last year’s event, as part of the 2009 Oxfam Book Festival, was a small affair based around discussion panels with guests including former 2000AD editor David Bishop and Commando writer Ferg Handley. As with Dundee, Oxfam’s guests will be announced in due course and there will be more details on Oxfam Morningside’s Twitter feed. Last year’s Oxfam panel on Scottish settings in graphic novels was filmed and is available to view on YouTube – part 1 and part 2.

News, reviews, interviews and features for print and on-line: Spaceship Away (since October 2005), Bear Alley (since February 2007), downthetubes (since June 2007), and Eagle Times (since October 2008). Plus DC Thomson's The Art Of Ian Kennedy, Titan’s Dan Dare and Johnny Red reprints, Ilex’s War Comics: A Graphic History and 500 Essential Graphic Novels, and Print Media’s The Iron Moon and Strip magazine.
