Warren Ellis and Alan Grant are to headline Comics Day at this year’s Dundee Literary Festival.
The pair will give a talk about their careers at the festival on 28 June, which will also include a session devoted to 2000AD, considered the most successful and influential British science fiction comic still in publication.
“Each year the Comics Day grows in profile,” Dr Christopher Murray, the organiser of Comics Day, told The Scotsman, “and it is my intention to make it a staple event, underscoring Dundee’s central position as the home of comic culture in the UK.”
He added Comics Day gave the festival a dimension most literary celebrations lacked.
