Panel Borders: Incredibly Strange Comics

November 6, 2008

Panel Borders: Incredibly Strange Comics
An uncut version of a pair of interviews originally broadcast 06/11/08 as part of Strip! on Resonance 104.4 FM (London)

Parental Advisory StickerIn the first of two belated Halloween specials, Alex Fitch talks to sequential art expert Paul Gravett about his new book “The Leather Nun And Other Incredibly Strange Comics” (sold in America with the even subtler title “Holy Sh*t! The World’s Weirdest Comic Books”) which looks at the weirder and more lurid examples of the genre and to Australian artist Ben Templesmith about his career so far, drawing comics such as the neo-noir title “Fell”, the Matrix inspired “Singularity 7” and the popular vampire serial “30 days of night” which was adapted as a movie last year. Please note, this is an uncut show with very strong language!
