Extract from Babys in black by Arne Bellstorf

Starting a month of shows about the crossover between comics books and music, Alex Fitch talks to graphic novelist Arne Bellstorf about his new book, Baby’s in black which retells the story of Astrid Kirchherr & Stuart Sutcliffe in cartoon form. Alex and Arne talk about the travails of depicting 1960s Hamburg on the page, what led to the creation of the graphic novel and his use of cinematic pacing in the book.
