— Indie Comics month
Originally broadcast 05/02/09 as an episode of Strip! on Resonance 104.4 FM
Starting a month of shows on indie comic book creators, Dickon Harris presents a trio of interviews recorded at last autumn’s Comica festival at the ICA; Dickon is talking to the winner – Julian Hanshaw – and runner-up – Isabel Greenberg – of 2008’s Observer / Jonathan Cape Graphic Short Story competition about their strips: “Sand Dunes and Sonic Booms” and “Cheer up, love, it’s only a credit crunch”. Dickon also talks to author Tim Pilcher about his books on Erotic Comics and how the changing landscape of censorship and appreciation of graphic novels as literature, has altered the reception of adult comics over the years.
