Since 2016 the Scottish Centre for Comics Studies has produced a number of public information comics, many of them dealing with healthcare issues and science communication. This has been part of a research project looking into the educational potential of comics. We believe that comics, which combine words and images, engage readers in unique ways that can aid understanding. The medium is highly effective at communicating ideas clearly, but also provoking emotional, intellectual and imaginative responses.
We publish our public information comics through Dundee Comics Creative Space, as well as student and alumni work through our UniVerse and Comicsopolis imprints. Click the images below to read some of these comics online.
If you have any queries or feedback please feel free to contact us. Also, please complete a brief questionnaire about our comics (https://dundee.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/public-information-comics). We would really appreciate your thoughts on the comics, especially on the impact they might have made on your understanding of these issues.
