Today at 4.30pm on Resonance 104.4 FM, Panel Borders: Medusa, The Golem and other phantoms of fine art
Continuing a month of shows looking at the use of fine art techniques in comics and graphic novels, Alex Fitch talks to graphic novelist Chris Kent about his pair of self published books Medusa and The Golem, rendered using traditional fine art techniques. Medusa takes a metaphorical approach to the legend of the creature that turns witnesses to stone, while The Golem is a more literal approach as a turn of the century magician uses the Jewish creature of vengeance in his stage show to devastating effect.
