Panel from Untranslated by David Lander

Continuing Sci-Fi comics month on the show, we have a couple of interviews recorded at comic book conventions with small press creators who are working in the SF and Fantasy genres. In an interview recorded at this year’s Bristol Comics Expo, Dickon Harris talks to comic book creator and musician Dave Lander who contributes to the anthology comic Decadence which in the last couple of instalments has been heavily SF themed and influenced by the style of Moebius and other contributors to the classic French anthology Métal Hurlant. Also, as Dave produced a CD soundtrack to go with recent issues, the show includes extracts from a couple of tracks.

Plus: Alex Fitch talks to Rob Jackson about his fantasy comics Random Journeys and Bog Wizards which combine unreliable narrators, humour and magical landscapes, in an interview recorded at “Schmurgencon” in a pub in the East End after the UK Web and Mini Comix Thing.
