Starting a month of shows about war comics, Alex Fitch talks to award winning writer Garth Ennis about his interest in the genre, from the backdrop of conflict in his debut strip Troubled Souls to his exploration of wars throughout the 20th Century and beyond in his series War Stories and Battlefields. Alex and Garth also discuss his past and forthcoming projects for Avatar, Dynamite and Marvel Comics and there are questions from the audience on the subjects of putting his stories into context for younger readers and the use of drones on the battlefield. This interview was recorded live at the Imperial War Museum, London as part of the ‘Comics and Conflicts Festival‘, August 2011.

Fantastic interview and a great way to kick off the focus on war stories. Hope you’ve some Pat Mills genius lined up. An amazing interview with Garth and a wonderful extra to what is an amazing series of war books. Hope this gets widely heard, it very much deserves it.
