Extract from Re Members by Francesca Cassavetti and Nick Tesco

Starting ‘women in comics’ month on the show, we have a couple of interviews with small press creators who are selling their self published periodicals at festivals and competitions around the country. Dickon Harris talks to Bea, a.k.a. Beatrice Lane, in an interview recorded at the Bristol Small Press expo and Alex Fitch talks to Francesca Cassavetti in an interview recorded at “Schmurgen con” in Mile End. Bea publishes “Bear Cave” ‘zines on a variety of subjects from short fiction to music reviews, with her latest issue ‘The most splendid bands I know’ due out shortly, while Francesca’s “Fab Toons” comics tell a variety of autobiographical stories from her life, in strip format, from her days at art school to dating a former punk star and the birth of her first child.

Dear Tommie,

sorry about that. I think the index – http://www.panelborders.wordpress.com/index which is linked to under the index button at the top makes it fairly easy to navigate. There’s also a search box and a list of various categories at the bottom. There’s not much else I can do!

best wishes,
Alex

I understand, you have so much here, it just gets a little confusing. I tried the search a few times and just ended back at the same page. the index link looks a lot more promising.

Great content tho :)
