Panel Borders: Sussex to South Asia and stops in-between
Continuing a month of shows about travel in comic books and graphic novels, this week’s Panel Borders looks at the work of two young graphic novelists whose work is published by Jonathan Cape. Alex Fitch talks to Julian Hanshaw about his new collection of short stories, I’m Never Coming Back which includes his award winning entry to the Observer / Cape Graphic Short Story Prize, and his previous graphic novel The Art of Pho, which both depict magical-realist stories of travel around the globe.
Also, in a talk given at Laydeez do Comics earlier this year, Hannah Berry discusses her second graphic novel, Adamtime, which tells the tale of a group of people trapped on a mysterious, sedentary train in the middle of the night, the paths that lead them there and their attempts to escape. (Originally broadcast 21/10/12 on Resonance FM)
