The Forgotten Heroes Of Beanotown

Not much warning but if anyone is within travelling distance of Dundee on Wednesday 8 October then Dr Chris Murray will be giving a talk to the Abertay Historical Society on The Forgotten Heroes Of Beanotown.

Dr Murray was the organiser of the Dundee Literary Festival Comics Day in June and talked at the Happy Birthday Beano event in July. This time his subject will be the often overlooked and short lived superheroes created for the DC Thomson comics and story papers in the 1930s and 1940s and the role that those titles played in the war effort.

The talk will take place at 6:30pm in Discovery Point on the Dundee waterfront on Wednesday 8 October 2008. Entrance is free and membership of the Abertay Historical Society is not required. Refreshments will be available from 6:00pm.
