Continuing a month of shows looking at horror and fantasy comics, Alex Fitch talks to comic book artist and illustrator Glenn Fabry about his graphic novel adaptation of Duncan Jones’ yet to be filmed sequel to Moon, a Philip K Dick style drama called Mute. Glenn discusses the differences between illustrating adaptions of film scripts and regular comics, his collaboration with Steve Niles on the horror serial Lot 13, drawing Garth Ennis’ “funniest script” for The Authority: Kev, and his plans for more personal work in the future. Recorded in front of a live audience at Cartoon County, Brighton, Summer 2013.

4.30pm, Monday 14th October 2013, repeated 8am, Sunday 21st October 2013, Resonance 104.4 FM (London) / streamed at / podcast after broadcast at

Recommended Events:

The Lakes International Comic Art Festival

The Lakes International Comic Art Festival is modelled on the European comic festivals rather than comic conventions that UK audiences are more familiar with.

The aim is create an ‘en fete’ atmosphere, making the whole town part of the festival. There will be a much bigger emphasis on the range of talks, special live drawing events, workshops, films, exhibitions and a kids’ zone. Some of the events, including the exhibitions and the kids’ zone will also be free.

There will be The Comics Clock Tower – in Kendal Town Hall, where people will be able to buy comics and where authors and artists will be signing copies of their work. It will be smaller than at most comic conventions and will focus on writers, artists and publishers who are pioneers of a new wave of innovators in the field of comics and graphic storytelling.

We will be kicking off on Friday evening, 18th October and running until teatime on Sunday 20th. The programme will feature around 30 events of different styles and scales including meet the creators (presentations, live drawings and interviews), panel discussions and a few quirky events too. Alongside this there will be a film programme, exhibitions, workshops, our version of a marketplace/artists’ alley and a dedicated kids’ zone……and more

Guests include: Charlie Adlard, Steve Bell, Hannah Berry, Gareth Brookes, Ed Brubaker, Kurt Busiek, Stephen Collins, Darryl Cunningham, Rob Davis, Al Davison, Andy Diggle, Glyn Dillon, Pete Doherty, Hannah Eaton, Hunt Emerson, Carlos Ezquerra, Duncan Fegredo, Karrie Fransman, Simon Fraser, Katie Green, Isabel Greenberg, Steven Harris, David Hine, Ilya, David Lloyd, Robbie Morrison, Jose Muñoz, Luke Pearson, Ivan Petrus, Sean Phillips, Gary and Warren Pleece, Trina Robbins, Joe Sacco, Gilbert Shelton, Posy Simmonds, Nicola Streeten, Bryan and Mary Talbot, John Wagner and Oscar Zarate…
