Did Scotland Invent The Comic Book? (Close, but not quite.)

Did Scotland Invent The Comic Book? Bleeding Cool Comic Book, Movies and TV News and Rumors:

The Glaswegian Proto-comic.

It’s frustrating that this publication had all the elements necessary to make a comic book narrative, all in place for the first time, but seperately, never quite used together. It’s more the Missing Link rather than the Origin Of Comics itself.

But with Scotand so influential in the comics form, from the likes of Oor Wullie, The Broons, The Beano, Dennis The Menace, Dandy and the likes of Alan Grant, John Wagner, Mark Millar, Grant Morrison, Gary Erskine and Frank Quitely, it’s good to know there’s something in the blood.
