Cindy and Biscuit by Dan White / Naming Monsters by Hannah Eaton

Continuing a month of shows on horror and fantasy comics, Alex Fitch talks to a pair of writer / artists about their work in these genres which mix tales of adolescent girls with English legends, spirit animals and weird occurrences. Hannah Eaton discusses her folkloric graphic novel Naming Monsters, recently published by Myriad Editions and a result of her entering the 2012 First Fictions Competition. Dan White talks about his self published comics Terminus and Cindy and Biscuit, the latter combining the adventures of a Little Orphan Annie type character and her dog with Lovecraftian horrors. Both interviews were recorded live at Cartoon County, Brighton, Summer 2013, with additional questions by David Lloyd, Corinne Pearlman, Glenn Fabry, Dave Stone and others.
