Description

Morris Heggie is the legendary editor of Dundee's world-famous comics industry, who for 50 years brought The Broons, Dennis the Menace and Oor Wullie to life. Morris started working for Scottish publishing giant D.C. Thomson when he was 17, joining the company straight from school, first as a copyboy but soon rising through the ranks as his talent for writing the storylines for the firm's stable of comics became apparent. Now retired but still much in demand, Morris will reflect on his time behind some of the most memorable stories from the lives of The Bash Street Kids, Minnie the Minx and Desperate Dan.
