COMIC LAUNCH & EXHIBITION
As part of the Edinburgh Art Festival, Artlink launches Scott vs Demons, a comic which takes a satirical look at the bureaucratic mistreatment of vulnerable people with chronic ill health and disabilities.
The comic takes as its starting point the experience of Scott Davidson, a young man with autism, and goes on a flight of fantasy where we get to experience the Personal Independence Payments (PIP) assessment process for the ridiculous farce it is.
On show at Artlink will be the original artwork for the comic and an opportunity to meet with some of the people behind the comic and talk with them about the ideas behind its creation.
Exhibition Venue: Artlink, 13a Spittal street, Edinburgh, EH3 9DY
Comic signing with Alan Grant & Scott Davidson: Friday 25th August, 9.30am- 5pm
Exhibition of Original Artwork: Friday 25th and Saturday 26th August, 9.30am – 5pm
Where to buy your copy: At Artlink, Blackwells Books, Deadhead Comics and other retailers or buy it online by clicking here.
