Today’s show: Mythologising Superheroes

March 20, 2008

Today at 5pm on Resonance 104.4FMStrip!: 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.
