Dear Alex,

I’m so pleased to come across your website and the radio programme, and especially enjoyed the last month’s focus on LGTB comics. I’d like to invite you to speak at a reading group that runs at Senate House in London — is there an email address where I could contact you in order to elaborate a bit? Also do feel free to drop us a note if that’s easier: literarylondonrg [at] gmail.com

Hope to hear from you!

Best Wishes,

Lisa Robertson

Good day, Mr. Fitch,

I am thrilled to find your radio program and envious that the Brits are so far ahead of the curve on public perception of comics than we Americans. I don’t see a way to contact you more directly, but I want to pass along information on my project, 1000 Great Graphic Novels at my site comicsjuice.com. This two-minute-twenty-second video – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=87iz5fuflAI – will show you the gist, as well as mild dizziness and eye-strain. Try hard not to blink.

I have a press release sorting out the details if you let me know where I can send it.

Regards,
Allen Rubinstein
