Today’s show: Mythologising Superheroes
March 20, 2008
Today at 5pm on Resonance 104.4FM – Strip!: Mythologising Superheroes
Alex Fitch interviews Doug Braithwaite, a Scottish comics artist who is best known for his collaborations with painter Alex Ross & writer Jim Krueger on such titles as Universe X & Paradise X which depict a mythological future for the characters of the Marvel Universe and Justice, a graphic novel celebrating the DC ‘Silver age’. Alex and Doug also talk about the latter drawing ultra-violent escapades of the Punisher that hark back to 1980s action films and whether being a black comic book artist has influenced his work and projects.
Delayed from last week (sorry): In this week’s ComICA slot, we have the second of three extracts from ComICA Collaboratories; a talk about modern comics practices such as Daniel Merlin Goodbrey’s webcomics and collaborations between comics artists from different countries.
If you have yet to do so and would like to, please vote for my nomination in the Eagle Awards‘ ‘Roll of honour’ (which you’ll find at the bottom of the screen) – voting closes on the 22nd March. More info at alexfitch.com…
