Today at 4.30pm on Resonance 104.4 FM, Panel Borders: Will Eisner week
Starting a month of shows about comics and graphic novels which depict ordinary life on the page, Alex Fitch talks to a quartet of comics experts and historians about Will Eisner’s autobiographical comics to coincide with International Will Eisner Week, which celebrates the author’s work. Richard Reynolds (Senior Lecturer, Central Saint Martins), Ian Rakoff (Lecturer, Victoria and Albert Museum), Guy Lawley (contributor: 1001 Comics You Must Read Before You Die) and Steve Edgell (co-author: The Complete Cartooning Course) discuss Eisner’s seminal graphic novel A Contract with God and its sequels, the cartoonist’s work for the army on P.S. Magazine: The Preventive Maintenance Monthly and his final work The Plot: The Secret Story of The Protocols of the Elders of Zion.
