Panel Borders returns after the Christmas break for a new series in an earlier slot on Sunday evenings. Starting a series of shows about the 25th anniversary of the occult detective John Constantine’s first appearance in his own solo comic book, Alex Fitch talks to writers Jamie Delano, Andy Diggle and Peter Milligan, and artist David Lloyd, about creating issues of Hellblazer from its first issue to the present day. Jamie and David discuss the early days of the comic, launched as a spin off from Alan Moore’s acclaimed run on Swamp Thing while Andy and Peter talk about bringing the character into the 21st Century.

Zombies at the Science Museum
Zombies: the word alone is enough to get the pulse racing, but what makes them so terrifying? On a dark winter’s night at the Science Museum, we’ll explore the murky but fascinating world of consciousness and uncover the inner workings of the zombie psyche. From mind-altering drugs to the innate impulses we all feel, prepare to walk the line between human and zombie in surprising and theatrical ways. Bring your brain – and guard it carefully. There’ll also be prizes for the best-dressed zombies, so get creating your costumes!
Doors open 18.45, Wednesday 30th January 2013, Free (over 18s only)
