Sci-Fi Comics part one
Continuing our podcasts of talks and Q & As recorded live at this year’s Spring Sci-Fi London Film Festival, this is the first half of a two part podcast in which Alex Fitch talks to four practitioners of Science-Fiction comic books about their work; these include Paul Cornell (Captain Britain and MI-13 / Doctor Who), Bryan Talbot (Grandville / The Adventures of Luther Arkwright), Daniel Merlin Goodbrey (Iron Man 2020) and Paul Duffield (Freakangels). Alex discusses with the panel about using comics as an underated way of telling SF stories and the probable future of the medium via the internet.
Woodrow Phoenix at Brighton Library
Woodrow Phoenix, esteemed author of the astonishing graphic road-rage-busting RUMBLE STRIP, and so much else, will be doing his thing at the Jubilee Library this coming Thursday 3rd December at 6pm.

Bad Santa screening
Sasquatch Cinema is a monthly film night held at the new Shortwave cinema at 10 Bermondsey Square, London, SE1 3UN (Tel: 0207 357 6845). / nearest tube Borough (Northern line).
We will be showing an eclectic range of films including cult classics and rarities you may not have seen before.
The next film we will be showing is a late night screening of Bad Santa – staring Billy Bob Thornton on Friday, 11th December at 22:30.
The traditional Christmas tale will never be the same after this cleverly twisted and merrily irreverent story of a Santa so bad he’s wickedly funny. This is one of the best Christmas movies of recent years.
The cinema has a bar, and you can even bring your drinks in and watch the film!
The entry fee is £5.00. Tickets are sold on the night on a first come – first served basis. Email: gabzucc[at]yahoo.com for more info.
