• Out and About in Dundee

    This week I have had two whole days off work which is a rarity these days and so I decided to make the most of it and be as productive as possible!  My boyfriend and I compiled a list of things we want to do and places we want to eat at during the summer and throughout […]

  • Dundee Comics Expo

    On Saturday all hands were on deck as I was working at the Dundee Comics Expo; the mini convention taking place across from Dee Con 2014. It was fun to arrive early on in the day and see the Cosplayers roll up en-mass to queue for entry to Dee Con.  There were some really fun […]

  • Comics Day Out

    It may be the busiest time of the academic year as far as deadlines are concerned – but that doesn’t mean we can’t have fun while learning, right?! Us Comics Studies MLitt-ers certainly like to think that’s the case anyway, and on Monday we took a class trip to Glasgow where we visited Hope Street […]

  • Right Back At It Again

    One week in, and the calm of Christmas and excitement of Hogmanay is already a distant blurry memory! We’ve only been back in classes one week and I have already handed in coursework – no rest for the wicked has become my Master’s catchphrase!   I’m really looking forward to this semester though – despite the […]

  • Reading Week Adventures

    Thank goodness for rail cards! I’ve spent my Reading Week the only way I know how – doing anything but reading! Last weekend I took a trip down to Glasgow to visit friends from my undergrad course and catch up on all the news and gossip from the central belt!  A lot of pizza and […]

  • Cam Kennedy Comics Studio.

    Yesterday afternoon saw the opening of the Cam Kennedy Comics Studio at the university, opened by Cam Kennedy himself!  Cam is a highly influential comics artist, who has worked on titles such as Judge Dredd and Star Wars as well as a reworking of Robert Louis Stevenson’s Kidnapped, so it was very exciting to go […]


  • Avengers Assemble!: Getting started in Comics Studies.

    With Fresher’s Week flying past us, it’s finally time to settle down and get to grips with our courses; and I for one couldn’t be more excited about embarking on my Postgraduate adventure in Comics Studies. Matriculation on Friday posed as a great mixer for fellow postgraduate students in the Humanities department as we met […]
