A CELEBRATION of artists who have shaped some of Scotland's most famous comic books is now on display in Dunfermline.

The exhibition at Carnegie Library and Galleries shows off some of the Kingdom's unsung heroes who worked on publications like Commando, The Beano and 2000AD.

The work of Glasgow cartoonist William ‘Bud’ Neill, creator of the Evening Times character Lobey Dosser – Sheriff of Calton Creek and whose home, nicknamed Dim View, overlooked Dunfermline Cemetery, will be one of those featured.

The display will even include work by Fife crime writers Ian Rankin and Val McDermid.

Visitors can also view efforts by Martin Anderson, from Leuchars, who was the first artist to be employed by a British newspaper and who worked on the Dundee Advertiser and People's Friend before going on to create political satires for The Quiz; Aberdeenshire-born Len Fullerton, who lived in Newport-on-Tay and illustrated for Triumph, the Red Star Comic, and Comic Capers in the 1930s and ’40s; and writers John Wagner and Pat Mills, who lived in Wormit and plotted their own stories in their garden shed before working on titles such as Action and Battle.

Entry is free and the exhibition will run until January 14.
