That’s right, The Dunedin Comic Collective are proud to announce that we’re launching a comic shop!

Come and check it out! Have some nibbles and drinks, draw, enjoy some tunes and just hang out!

There will be cartoonists in attendance and a sneak peak at some of the comics we’ve got in the works.

We’ll probably get a coupla drawing games underway too before retiring to Chicks/ heading back into town to see Psychic Maps do their first show in yonks.

We’re putting on a FREE bus out there that will be leaving from the centre city Countdown at 5pm sharp and getting back at 8.

Be there or be square!

On Wednesday 21st of December come and join us on the 2nd floor of the Dunedin Public Library!

Bring any comics and ideas you’ve been working on and have a draw, exchange ideas and advice and have a whole bunch of fun! At the end of the night you can take home a copy of the anthology we do, DUDzine #4: BAT.

There will be cartoonists galore as well as food and drink and musical performances by Kilmog (formerly Bad Horsey) and Reuben Henderson.

This will also be the chance for a sneak peak at DUD: The Dunedin Comic Revue #3 which is due out next month!

If you can’t make it but want to be included email your comica/drawings to dunedincc@gmail.com (zipped 300dpi grayscale tiffs would be ideal)
