Panel Borders: Bryan Lee O’Malley’s Seconds

Panel Borders: Bryan Lee O’Malley’s Seconds

Opening a new season of Panel Borders, Alex Fitch talks to Canadian cartoonist Bryan Lee O’Malley in the first of a two part interview about his work. This week Fitch and O’Malley discuss the new graphic novel Seconds, published by SelfMadeHero, which depicts the adventures in time and (local) space of a young female chef who encounters a house spirit on the eve of opening her own restaurant. O’Malley talks about the influences on the book from reading Diana Wynne Jones to working in a kitchen while drawing Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, and the challenge of creating his first full colour graphic novel. (Recorded in front of an audience at the British Library, August 2014, and originally broadcast 17th September 2014 on Resonance 104.4 FM)
