Extract from A Dogs Tale by David Baillie

Continuing Indie comics month on Panel Borders: Alex Fitch talks to writer and artist David Baillie about his experiences in the comics industry. David has been self publishing comics since the beginning of the 2000s and has recently produced his first graphic novel – Tongue of the dead – a pastiche and welcome update of 1970s and 80s Sword and Sorcery comics such as Conan the Barbarian. David also has worked as a comics commentator for various publications, is working on a 3D site specific graphic novel with Daniel Merlin Goodbrey displayed on the walls of a children’s hospital in France and has just seen his first “Future Shock” published in the venerable British periodical 2000AD.

Just listened to and really enjoyed the podcast – I’ve listened to One Life Left for ages, but it didn’t occur to me to go and look at the rest of the Resonance family of shows.

Though not strictly comicky, can I mention that David Baillie is/has been writing regular short fiction at the daily writing blog “Elephant Words” – at – for a while now, along with other mini and small-press comics geniuses like Dan Lester, Douglas Noble, Andrew Cheverton, Rol Hirst, Josh Hechinger and Xander Bennett?

(Disclosure: I run the site, so of course I’m biased…)

Cool. I’ll add the link to the post and my interview with Dan. He’s not enough of a self publicist! Cheverton and Noble are on my to do list. :)
