Alex Fitch interviews Jill Thompson


Concluding children’s comics month on Panel Borders, the belated podcast of Alex Fitch’s interview with Jill Thompson sees Alex and Jill talk about her career so far from drawing popular DC comics such as Wonder Woman and Neil Gaiman’s Sandman to creating her own children’s books Scary Godmother and Magic Trixie. Jill also talks about her influences, her early work on Mike Baron’s Badger and her latest project Beasts of Burden.
(With thanks to Gosh! Comics for arranging this interview)
