(with thanks to Pádraig Ó Méalóid): Congratulations to top comics creator Bryan Talbot, who has been awarded an honorary doctorate for his “outstanding contribution to the Arts as writer and graphic artist” by Sunderland University.
The ceremony is on Friday 17th July at the annual Sunderland University award ceremony at The Stadium of Light, Sunderland.
As Padraig commented: "What with this and Terry Pratchett's knighthood, it seems that geekery is taking over the world. Go us!"
"It's fantastic news and well deserved," say Leah Moore and John Reppion. "I can't wait for the first time he says 'Stand aside, I'm a doctor!' (he definitely will)."
