Kate Brown and Paul Duffield: In the latest episode of the Caption Podcast, and the first to have been recorded at Caption small press festival 2011; Alex Fitch hosts a discussion between cartoonists Kate Brown and Paul Duffield about their comics and working practices. Kate and Paul are both alumni of the Manga Shakespeare line published by Self Made Hero and bring subtle, illustrative lines to their work, with washes of colour and and obvious interest in Manga.

The DFC Library

Excerpts from The Spider Moon by Kate Brown, MeZolith by Ben Haggarty and Adam Brockbank, and Good Dog, Bad Dog by Dave Shelton

From May 2008 – March 2009 Children’s book publisher David Fickling launched a bold experiment in creating a new kids comic – The DFC – for the British market, which on a weekly basis featured new stories in a variety of genres from some of Britain’s best up and coming comics creators, not to mention a lead strip written by Philip Pullman. Unfortunately the comic folded after 43 issues, but now a year on, the first three volumes of The DFC Library have been released, reprinting collections of material in European Graphic Album format.
Alex Fitch talks to Kate Brown, the award winning creator of Spider Moon, Dave Shelton, the creator of Good Dog, Bad Dog and Ben Haggarty, the writer of MeZolith, who with artist Adam Brockbank has created a book that one critic has already called “the most important British graphic novel of the last twenty years”.
