Today’s show: Manhua! Chinese comics now

March 13, 2008

Today at 5pm on Resonance 104.4FMStrip!: Manhua! Chinese comics now

Alex Fitch interviews a trio of artists exhibiting at the Manhua! China Comics Now exhibition at the London College of Communications – Yishan Li, Mr. Clement and Tim Yu discusses their art, their love of the comics medium and their influences. The show also includes excerpts from Paul Gravett’s introduction to the show, some of the live Chinese fusion music played live at the opening and an interview with China Now‘s Jessica Potter about the importance of promoting comics as part of London’s 2008 festival of Chinese culture.

(The second of three extracts from ComICA Collaboratories; a talk about modern comics practices including the work of last week’s Panel Borders guest Daniel Merlin Goodbrey will be in next week’s show)
