"Want to party with Batman and the dinosaurs? Superheroes and the mummy?
‘Scotland and the Culture of Comics’ is a free event at The Hunterian, in the University of Glasgow, that will celebrate ‘St. Andrew’s Fair Saturday 2018’ on Saturday 1 Dec 7-10pm.
Showcasing world class research and related objects from the university’s collections, including the world’s first comic, this dynamic and entertaining comic con evening will feature a wide variety of activities and panel discussions with a number of special guests. Comic themed costumes are highly recommended for the cosplay runway and competition.
This unique event will contribute to the global Fair Saturday movement and the celebration of St. Andrew’s day to boost social inclusion, fairness and sharing inspired by Scotland’s National Day. We will be encouraging donations on the night to support development of a widening participation outreach project with young people from disadvantaged areas across the city.
The event will include a comics-themed DJ and a cash bar".
