Speak to me about comics. I worked in the comics industry for 36 years and know something of the medium. I recently completed an MLitt in Comics Studies at the University of Dundee. My particular interest is British War Comics and the light they throw on popular culture in the UK during their period of predominance as youth entertainment in the post-WW2 years. The genre's rebirth as a more nuanced and sophisticated product for a more mature audience serves to highlight their importance within studies of popular culture.
