Today’s show: Comics across the world
February 7, 2008
Today at 5pm on Resonance 104.4FM – Strip!: Comics across the world
Alex Fitch and Duncan Nott talk to Dirk Maggs about his comic book adaptations Superman – Death & Beyond, Superman on Trial and Batman: Knightfall, how the shows got commissioned and the challenges of bringing a visual art form to a visuals free medium.
Also, as this year’s Angouleme festival has just finished in France, we’ve got a repeat of a ComICA lecture about a cultural exchange between the comics capital of europe and comic book art in Asia. Paul Gravett introduces Bandes Dessinees: Between Angouleme & Hanoi.
Mixing reportage and romance, acclaimed French auteur and tutor Gérald Gorridge (Les Fantômes de Hanoï) shares his passion for Vietnam, where he has discovered a fresh generation of comics geniuses. This recording isn’t being podcast so make sure you tune in if you’d like to hear it!
