Today’s show: Classic Childrens’ characters in Comics

December 20, 2007

Today at 5pm on Resonance 104.4FM – Strip!: Classic Childrens’ characters in Comics

In the last Strip! of the year, Alex Fitch and Duncan Nott are looking at the depiction of beloved children’s characters in comics. First we have our interview with Mark Buckingham about reinventing classic fairy tales in Fables and the challenge of bringing something new to the character in his two year run on Spider-man.

Later in the show we have the first on air broadcast of Alex & Duncan’s conversation with Geoff Senior and Simon Furman on 25 years of Transformers, which was first podcast last summer. This is a change to the show advertised at the end of last week’s episode (which was to be about adaptations of classic literature in comics and will be broadcast in a fortnight) mainly because I accidently left the CD at home this morning…

Simon FurmanWith a week to go until the release of the new Transformers movie, Alex Fitch and Duncan Nott interview the writer (Simon Furman) and one of the most acclaimed artists (Geoff Senior) of the seminal British Transformers comic from the 1980s which helped cement a love of the robots in disguise for our generation as much as the cartoons and toys the franchise was based on.
