Couldn't happen to a nicer fella; fantastic to see Cam's legendary skills and output honoured this way.

The Cam Kennedy Comics Studio, Dundee University:

"The Cam Kennedy Comics Studio is situated within the University's Tower Building, and will enhance the comics research, teaching and practice taking place at Dundee. Fitted out with all the equipment required to produce traditional and digital publications, the studio will house aspiring comics writers and artists from the University's pioneering undergraduate and postgraduate programmes."

That sounds great. Just waiting on the first forum member to be photographed there, while wearing a Cam t-shirt.

Great to hear.

I'm a big Cam Kennedy fan, it's nice to see him get this recognition.

An absolutely brilliant artist, and absolutely well deserved recognition.

They man's a true gent and this is a suitable way of marking his genius.

No better man. May this centre, and Scots comicbook talent, flourish.
If I'd known it was harmless I would have killed it myself.
