A collection of essays discussing the comics of D.C. Thomson, their influence and their impact.
Comics published by D.C. Thomson from Dundee were key elements of the reading experience of many, particularly in the period from the end of the Second World War until the 1980s. This collection of essays offers a number of perspectives upon those comics, including an autobiographical account by Alan Grant, the noted comic writer, of the role they played in his life. The book is heavily illustrated throughout, including complete stories such as the first ‘Tough of the Track’.
