The monthly show about comics and graphic novels. This month, in a pair of interviews recorded at Cartoon County, Hove, Alex Fitch talks to a trio of independent comic creators who work in genre storytelling. Kevin Gunstone discusses writing sci-fi and horror comics such as Planet of Daemons, DIS: The Satan Machine, and Future Primitive for a variety of different publishers including Markosia and Amigo Comics. Also, the co-founders of Sussex based Blue Fox comics – writer Simon Birks and creative director Marielle Birks – introduce their range of titles including Sinners, Hexes and a new gender swapped version of Robin Hood called Robyn (seen in the header image above).
Alex Fitch talks to Leah Moore about her Electricomics app for iPads which offers a new way of reading and distributing online comics to readers and a new platform for creators. Alex and Leah discuss the various titles available to read on the app, including Sway by herself, John Reppion and Nicola Scott, Big Nemo by Alan Moore and Colleen Dora, and how the project came about as part of a multimedia project envisioned by her father.
