Join Professor Christopher Murray and his colleagues to discuss the surprising history of comics in Dundee, and learn about the future of comics in Dundee, with a look at the new comics being produced by the University.
These include a comic conceived and edited by PhD student Hailey Austin in conjunction with the University of Dundee's Archive and Museum Services which explores the University's collection of comics related archival holdings and original artwork.
