Comics: “the horror, the horror of it all…”

Published On October 31, 2013 | By Joe Gordon | Comics, Interviews

Festering Alex Fitch drags himself from his decaying tomb for a very appropriate Halloween season Panel Borders episode on horror in comics, now available as an extended podcast:

This episode concludes a month of episodes looking at horror comics, and includes interviews with a quartet of British creators who work in that genre. Alex Fitch talks to David Hine, author of Strange Embrace and writer of a variety of horror comics for American publishers, I.N.J. Culbard, the illustrator of SelfMadeHero’s H.P. Lovecraft adaptations and Hannah Berry, whose second graphic novel Adamtine is a claustrophobic tale of terror set on a train, in a panel recorded at the first Lakes International Comic Art Festival.

Also, Gareth Brookes discusses his extraordinary graphic novel The Black Project, illustrated via linocut and embroidery, which tells the story of an unusual young man who makes his girlfriends out of found materials, and mixes The Silence of the Lambs with arts and crafts magazines.
