Commencing our yearly month long look at ‘Cross Cultural comics’, Alex Fitch talks to Paul Gravett about co-curating a gallery show on Jack Kirby in Lucerne, Switzerland and the film adaptation of the bande dessinée Largo Winch which was shot mainly in English, even though the film is a French / Belgium co-production. Alex also talks to Francesca Cassavetti, Dan Lester, Sean Azzopardi and Oliver Lambden about their anthology B.A.S.T.A.R.D.S. which was created as a survey of the best small press creators in London for dissemination at the Angoulême comics festival in France at the beginning of the year.

Futureproof: the Timehacks and Life-mods of Cory Doctorow

Cory Doctorow is a science fiction author, activist, journalist and blogger, the co-editor of boingboing.net and author of the bestselling novels LITTLE BROTHER and FOR THE WIN. Join him for tales of woe and wonder that will explore the realms of storytelling as techno-social activism; delving into creativity as symbiotic, cross-cultural hacking; breaching the dangers and shelters of reason; examining the copywrongs of copy-right; transducing pathways to a post-scarcity world while pondering if truth is truly in sight? Be there and glimpse the future, right now… (OK, it might just be a regular author Q&A about some perhaps unusual themes…)
