A little misleading, but I want to have at least some content on this page. But I’m also on holiday and so will cheat a little.
First up is a student documentary of some of what happens up here. There’s an interview with Mike from Asylum (the assistant manager Vesper can be heard in the background), as well as a tour round the shop, a small tour around Plan 9 as well, and a chat with Marie from Devolution Comics.
Secondly, there should be a signing soon at Asylum, and now there’s a new stand for local and indie press comics.
Aberdeen, in the North East of Scotland, is far away from the central belt of Edinburgh and Glasgow, which are both more well-known in regards to the entertainment industry. Dundee is a hub for comic production, with it’s comic literature courses at the university.
But here in Aberdeen, it’s a little more independent up here. We’ve got two fantastic independent comic shops, two small-press publishers, and just had the second year of a local comic convention, with another convention happening just 15 miles away.
So this site, is an excuse to showcase Aberdeen in regards to the comic industry that’s happening here, as well as to try to help promote local film productions and such (and for me to learn WordPress).
