Non-Verbal Communication: Concluding a trio of shows about ‘untold tales’, narratives not normally depicted in comics, Alex Fitch talks to writer Laura Malacart and artist Daniel Locke about their comic book Yes! which explores the true story of an autistic man who communicates through song, classified technically as non-verbal communication. Daniel and Laura discuss how the comic was developed from the latter’s academic research, how it works as a multi-media project alongside video clips, and the distribution of the story via a free tabloid edition and webcomic. (Recorded at Cartoon County, September 2014, originally broadcast Thursday 18th December 2014 on Resonance 104.4 FM, London)

Art from Probably nothing, and web comics by Matilda Tristram

Probably Nothing: Starting a month of shows about untold tales in comics, which is to say stories that are underrepresented in graphic narratives, Alex Fitch talks to cartoonist and storyboard artist Matilda Tristram about her debut graphic novel Probably Nothing – A diary of your-not-average nine months, which recounts the true story of how her pregnancy coincided with a cancer scare. Alex and Matilda discuss the unusual style of the book, which separates out cartoons and text on the page, her tenure working for Children’s TV producers Ragdoll and the semi experimental art used in her webcomics. (Originally broadcast 4th December 2014 on Resonance 104.4 FM, recorded at Cartoon County, Brighton, November 2014)
