Panel Borders: Join the Army Fear Channel

Concluding a month of episodes about war comics, Alex Fitch talks to fine artist Darren Cullen about his comics Join the Army and Below, the first a satirical look at Military propaganda from the Bayeux Tapestry to the present day and the latter updating the genre of subterranean Sci-Fi invented by Verne and Rice Burroughs. Fitch and Cullen also discuss the Fear Channel collage website and current interactive installation ‘Pocket Money Loans’ at Atom Gallery in Finsbury Park. (Originally broadcast 30th October 2014 on Resonance 104.4 FM)
