Concluding this month’s series of shows about new British comics, Alex Fitch talks to the creators of a pair of new Edwardian set comics that mix classic comic book ideas with old and new storytelling techniques. Howard Hardiman discusses The Peckham House for Invalids, a new comic he’s written, illustrated by Julia Scheele and Sarah Gordon that features disabled homeless children with superpowers. Howard and Alex also talk about the return of the author’s beloved anthropomorphic title Badger, in a new zine / illustrated novella format and his recent experiences at art school.
Plus, in a pair of interviews recorded at the MCM Expo, Alex talks to Leah Moore, John Reppion and Emma Vieceli about their web comic, The Thrill Electric, which started this week on Channel 4’s website and tells the tale of sexual politics gang violence and the arrival of the telegraph in turn of the Century Manchester.
