Continuing this month’s theme of shows about newspaper comics, Alex Fitch talks to a couple of creators working on newspaper strips featuring popular British science-fiction characters. Richy K Chandler is a member of a writing team penning new adventures of Wallace and Gromit for The Sun newspaper, including this week’s story ‘Paper Hound’ and talks about his interest in humour strips and writing licensed characters. Writer / artist Huw J Davies was approached by The Daily Mirror in 2007 to update their classic adventure strip Garth for the 21st Century and he talks about his problems in achieving this goal and how it lead to a reimagining of the character in his graphic novel Freeman.
