Panel Borders: Newspaper Comics
This week’s show begins a month of shows about anthologies and collectives; Alex Fitch talks to the editors of two comic book anthologies which are printed in newspaper form; Richard Cowdry about his anthology, The Comix Reader, a new 24 page newspaper anthology inspired by his love of old newspaper strips, cinema cartoons and his connections with the alternate press scene; and Matthew Sheret about his twice yearly anthology Paper Science, published through his company We are words and pictures, an anthology which showcases brilliant design and the best up and coming comic book creators.
Paper Science 4 will be launched at Sci-Fi London’s comic book weekend, which takes place at the BFI on London’s Southbank on 30th April and 1st May, a two day festival featuring panels, talks, workshops, screenings / tables for small press creators to sell their work and entry is free.
