How do you make a comic? This exhibition is designed to strip away some of the mysteries surrounding the process. It focuses on the production of comics and how the process has changed over time. As well as some stunning artwork, the exhibition also features fascinating examples of printing plates, corrections, colour proofs and more. Some examples are from major publishers while others are by independent artists creating self-published work.

The University of Dundee Museums hold Scotland’s only public collection of original comics art, a cornucopia of creativity from both Scottish and international creators.

This exhibition has been guest-curated by Zu Dominiak, comics creator, curator, lecturer and a former AHRC-funded intern with Museum Services. 

You can book to visit the exhibition via Eventbrite. Booking is not essential but helps us to keep track of visitor numbers.     

SPECIAL EVENT! On Tues 2 August at 5.30pm, Zu will be giving an informal guided tour of the exhibition, followed by an illustrated talk focusing on the artist's practice, including the latest Inside the Museum comic! Places should also be booked via Eventbrite.
