Today’s show: Little Terrors and (other) Psychiatric Tales

February 18, 2010

Today on Resonance FM:

Strip! – Little Terrors and (other) Psychiatric Tales

Excerpts from Little Terrors by Jon Scrivens and Psychiatric Tales by Darryl Cunningham

Excerpts from Little Terrors by Jon Scrivens and Psychiatric Tales by Darryl Cunningham

Continuing our month long look at webcomics, Alex Fitch talks to two writer artists whose work started off telling fantastical tales, took a detour via stories set in Hell and its environs and are now doing work with a greater autobiographical element. Darryl Cunningham is the creator of the humourous superhero strip Super Sam and John by Night, whose sequel to that strip tells tales of the inferno, The Streets of San Diablo and more recently to critical acclaim has started rendering experiences from his day job in Psychiatric Tales; Jon Scrivens is the creator of Little Terrors, a popular strip that tells the tale of a friendly zombie who is trying to connect with his old friends, who have also turned into a variety of monsters, in the wake of an outbreak of the living dead. and Jon is just about to start on a new strip, When’s Graham, which mixes collegiate humour with a touch of time travel…

Drawn Out and Painted Pink, an exhibition of cartoons by Kate Charlesworth and David Shenton

Throughout February 2010 The Drill Hall will be hosting and housing Drawn Out & Painted Pink, a cartoon exhibition by Kate Charlesworth and David Shenton documenting LGBT history from the 1970s to now.

“Like the best foreign correspondents (only funnier) their cartoons and comic strips have painted a devastatingly accurate self-portrait of LGBT life in the UK… They’ve got us bang to rights in the ways we were, the ways we are and the ways we could be. These are social documents of the highest order.”
Ellen Galford

The Drill Hall, Bloomsbury, West End, London WC1E 7EX
