Starting a month of shows about anthropomorphic or ‘funny animal’ comics we’re proud to present a panel recorded at this year’s Comica festival: TV and BBC Radio comedy writer David Quantick and underground cartoonist Edwin Pouncey, a.k.a. Savage Pencil talk about their graphic novel, currently serialised in Alan Moore’s magazine Dodgem Logic, which concerns the life of Louis Wain, Edwardian painter of cats whose work became increasingly experimental as his mental health deteriorated. The two creators discuss their interest in Wain, the depiction of his life and his cats in their comic, and the important use of Feline Ophthalmology and wallpaper in fine art! (Recorded, edited and introduced by Alex Fitch)
