About

In recognition of the strong culture of comic production and study within Dundee we are delighted to announce that Matthew Gallery at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design is to be the only UK venue to host the exceptional exhibition of works from the leading lights of German comic book art; Comics, Manga & Co. The new culture of German comics. The exhibition, which will open on the first of November, includes autobiographical, surrealist, and historical narratives alongside comic reportages and literary adaptations, reinforces Comics and Graphic Novels as a hugely important part of contemporary art, literature and popular culture. Dundee's history of great character development from the infamous DC Thomson comic strip favourites Dennis and Gnasher, Desperate Dan and Minnie the Minx through to the internationally known blockbuster computer games such as Lemmings, Grand Theft Auto and Mortal Kombat, makes it the perfect city to host this exhibition.
