Continuing a month of shows looking at the work of female comic book creators, Alex Fitch talks to a pair of cartoonists whose work occurs at the opposite ends of the emotional spectrum. Small press cartoonist Rachael Smith discusses her first graphic novel – House Party – just released by Great Beast Comics, and her back list of humorous self published comics which deal with disenfranchised British teenagers, in an interview recorded at ELCAF (East London Comic Art Festival).
Also, American artist Maureen Burdock talks about the latest installment of her F Word Project, a series of comics about violence against women around the world; Mumbi and the long run tackles the subject of Female Genital Mutilation and the original artwork is on display at Space Station 65 gallery, Kennington until July 7th.
