David B’s Black Paths
Partially broadcast 29/09/11 on Resonance FM
Concluding our month of shows on war comics and our four years of broadcasts on Thursday evenings, Alex Fitch talks to French graphic novelist David B about his new book Black Paths, which depicts a little known footnote to the First World War, as the defeated Austro-Hungarian Empire loses control of the city port of Fiume in Italy and we meet various eccentric characters trapped within the city walls. Alex and David also talk about the latter’s Ignatz Award winning comic book Epileptic and his work with the independent publishing company L’Association.
