Taming the Elephantmen: In a companion podcast to last week’s episode, Alex Fitch continues his conversation with writer Richard Starkings and artist Ian Churchill about Elephantmen, a sci-fi anthropomorphic comic about animal / human hybrid soldiers coming to terms with life in the big city after being demobbed.
In a Q and A recorded at the Leeds Thought Bubble festival, Autumn 2011, Alex discusses Elephantmen issue #25 and beyond, including the comic’s use of guest artists such as Tim Sale and Marian Churchland and the programme of collecting the title into chunky graphic novels.
(This is the last in the current series of Panel Borders, which will return on September 16th, 2012)

As part of a series of talks and events tying in to the Superhuman exhibition currently on display at the Wellcome Collection, this talk is an all-action account of the muscle-bound figures gracing the pages of the Wellcome Library’s graphic novels, featuring rare issues. How extreme can anatomy become and still remain realistic? See how art, fantasy and the human body combine in exciting tales of heroes and villains.
