Continuing our month of shows looking at British writers of superhero titles, Alex Fitch talks to the current writers of two of the longest running American comics – Action Comics (which normally features Superman) and Detective Comics (which generally features Batman), Paul Cornell and David Hine.
Alex talks to Paul about his sojourn on the book which will detail a year long quest by Lex Luthor to gain superpowers and about his forthcoming titles Knight and Squire – a British set spin off of Batman – and Soldier One, a Science-Fiction title for Boom! comics, based on an idea by Stan Lee, and to David about exploring light and darkness in Gotham City, the joy of writing the psychopaths in Arkham Asylum and his surrealistic pop art Image comic The Bulletproof Coffin.

Pickled Ink‘s search for a comics artist

Art illustration agency Pickled Ink has launched a new award in a bid to find an artist to draw a new graphic novel by Super Gran creator and writer Jenny McDade.

Working with Jenny, the creator/writer of the TV series Super Gran, who cut her teeth writing strips for the British girls comic Tammy, and comic book author and editor Pat Mills, the agency is searching for an outstanding character-led artist to illustrate Jenny’s first graphic novel script, Party Girls. The winner will be awarded £1000 and a contract of representation at Pickled Ink, whose current artists include Hanako Clulow, Hattie Newman, Hannah Bagshaw and many others.

In brief, they’re asking for: character design of two lead characters; and a 20 frame sample sequence and a front cover design. The winning artist must be an existing or recent graduate from the last 12 months only, able to draw modern fashion, facial expression, great storytelling, and be generally ‘2011’.

The deadline for entries is Monday 8th November 2010, more info at where you can download a PDF of the full rules and conditions
