In a packed final show for 2010, Alex Fitch concludes his look at anthropomorphic comics, with a survey of recent titles for all ages – Gary Northfield’s ‘Derek the sheep’ who appears in The Beano and Beano Max comics; Mouse Guard, a series of adventure comics and graphic novels by David Petersen; and ‘Comical Animal’, a new website devoted to funny animal strips, curated by Jim Medway. The show features interviews with all three creators, recorded variously in Streatham Library, near Euston Station and via transatlantic phone line… (with thanks to Audyssey Technology for use of the South of Market iPhone speaker dock)

Each of the three interviews will be available here as extended half hour podcasts between now and the end of the year…

5pm, 16/12/10, Resonance 104.4 FM (London) / streamed at www.resonancefm.com
