Available at Hi-Ex!: Anthology

Cover by Colin MacNeil (Ex DJCAD Graduate)

Coming soon, a new comics series, Anthology, published under the imprint UniVerse, will showcase the best creative work that emerges from the new comics courses at the University of Dundee and DJCAD.

Anthology One, is the first issue, and features work from the students on Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design’s (DJCAD) Comic Art and Graphic Novels Module. Module Leader Phillip Vaughan said, "We have created an imprint called UniVerse to promote and publish up and coming work from the next generation of comic creators! This is the best of the work from the first cohort of the module, which (staggeringly!) was run over 12 weeks for one day a week during Semester 1 of Communication Design Level 3 (encompassing Animation, Graphic Design and Illustration undergraduates). This year we plan to roll the module out to other undergraduate areas of the art college. We hope you will be as impressed with the diverse and professional results as we are!" 

Dr Chris Murray of the School of Humanities, course leader of the Comics Studies MLitt, and director of the newly formed Scottish Centre for Comics Studies, helped to deliver the course, and said, "It is an exciting time for Comics Studies at Dundee, and the DJCAD module has been even more successful than we'd hoped - the results are impressive, and the students clearly benefited from workshops with industry professionals such as Frank Quitely, Cam Kennedy, Colin MacNeil, and others". He added, "we are looking forward to Anthology Two, and further publications from UniVerse".

You lucky people will be able to buy this at Hi-Ex! Make sure to pick up a copy!
