Alex Fitch talks to the artists of comics about civil war and conflict, in a pair of interviews recorded at Cartoon County. Lindsay Pollock discusses drawing the graphic novel Vanni which looks at the displacement of families during the Sri Lankan civil war, and his work with Postive/Negatives, a website that hosts strips about conflict and unrest around the world. Patrice Aggs chats about her art for the ongoing strip No Country, serialised in the weekly children’s comic The Phoenix, and collected in book length editions, which imagines a more dystopian United Kingdom where the country has been divided geographically between warring ideological sides.
