A comic book dating back to 1825 is said to be the oldest comic book in the world.

The book published just under 200 years ago in Scotland, mocked the fashions and politics of early 19th century.

The comic book has stolen the limelight at a graphic novel conference held at Glasgow University this week.

Dr Laurence, the organiser of the event said that this has put Scotland at the ‘forefront’ of the comic industry.
