The webcomics published across our digital channels have been created by University of Dundee’s Masters in Comics and Graphic Novels students. We worked closely with Phillip Vaughan and Christopher Murray to brief the students and work with them over a few months, acting as a client and feeding back on their progress.
The whole class was commissioned to produce work and the project acted as a live brief for their Comics Production module. We are excited to have been able to work in this way with our local students and provide them with the experience of working on a project, as well as payment for their webcomics.
Each student’s work is released in four instalments over four weeks, one after the other. They’re bold, exciting, varied and we can't wait to share each one with you in turn.
