Continuing our podcasts of talks and Q and As recorded live at this year’s Spring Sci-Fi London Film Festival, this is the second 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 ), Bryan Talbot (Grandville ), Daniel Merlin Goodbrey (Iron Man 2020) and Paul Duffield (Freakangels). In this second half, members of the audience ask the panel about the future of comics post Google digitization, their influences from SF literature and the cross-over between different audiences.

    […] First up, esteemed Doctor Who script editor Brian Minchin, needs your help, should you be of a particularly fannish bent. He needs to know, and I doubt we need read anything about the new season into this, the correct spelling of… those alien plants that begin with V, that pop up in ‘The Dalek Masterplan’, or whatever that serial is called now. You know. It should be obvious, but it’s not. All suggestions gratefully received, and hopefully we can get some sort of consensus sorted out.
