The second of two special episodes of Panel Borders looking at the history and practice of ‘The Atom Style’, which is currently the focus of an exhibtion at The Atomium in Brussels. Alex Fitch talks to comics historian and curator of the Atom Style exhibtion, Paul Gravett about the history of that aesthetic movement and its links with Clair Ligne / Clear Line comics made famous by Herge’s Adventures of Tintin. Paul championed the style and movement in his 1980s magazine Escape and Alex and Paul talk about the British artists he helped discover and the European artists he felt were being neglected by the public, then and now. (part 2 of 2)
