This August, coinciding with the Edinburgh Fringe and the Edinburgh Book Festival, Kev F Sutherland, writer & artist for The Beano, Marvel Comics, Doctor Who and many more, will be delivering a series of free Comic Art Masterclasses at local libraries across Edinburgh.
By the end of the two hour session, which is open to anyone aged 7 and upwards, everyone goes away with a comic containing a strip drawn by every one in the group, plus an individual caricature by Kev F.
