Covers of The Great Unwashed and Montague Avenue by Gary and Warren Pleece / Kari and Adi Parva by Amruta Patil

Starting a month of shows about the depiction of travel in comic books, Alex Fitch talks to creators from Brighton and Delhi about their graphic novels which mix autobiography with fantastical elements. Gary and Warren Pleece discuss The Great Unwashed, a new collection of early self-published and small press work now available as the first release from Paul Gravett and Peter Stanbury’s Escape Books in 20 years; stories within include tales of piracy, gangsters and magical realism from contemporary Brighton Pier to 1970s New York and a prologue to their next release, Montague Terrace. Amruta Patil discusses her graphic novels Kari and Adi Parva which respectively tell the story of a young lesbian and her group of friends and acquaintances in a modern day Indian city, and a fully painted adaptation of the first book of The Mahabharata, both available from Harper Collins.

8pm, Sunday 7th October 2012, Resonance 104.4FM / streamed at www.resonancefm.com / extended podcast after broadcast at www.panelborders.wordpress.com
