Sussex to South Asia and stops in-between: Continuing a month of shows about travel in comic books and graphic novels, this week’s Panel Borders looks at the work of two young graphic novelists whose work is published by Jonathan Cape. Alex Fitch talks to Julian Hanshaw about his new collection of short stories, I’m Never Coming Back which includes his award winning entry to the Observer / Cape Graphic Short Story Prize, and his previous graphic novel The Art of Pho, which both depict magical-realist stories of travel around the globe.
