In an episode of Panel Borders previously broadcast as a live ‘Clear Spot’ on Resonance FM, Alex Fitch talks to Paul Gravett, Ariel Kahn, Eileen Cassavetti, Francesca Cassavetti and David Blandy about about the importance of war comics in culture and bringing the experience of war and conflict to new readers in a way that text alone can’t fully realise, plus the forthcoming Comics and Conflicts conference and events at the Imperial War Museum. Paul and Ariel discuss classic war comics and Francesca and Eileen talk about publishing the latter’s war time diary in comic book format, plus, in excerpts from a couple of classic episodes, Alex talks to Garth Ennis, and Grant Rogers interviews Pat Mills about Charley’s War.
