Panel Borders: Blastosaurus, The Great Gatsby and other fantastical creatures
Continuing a month of shows about Australasian comics, Alex Fitch talks to a pair of cartoonists whose work mixes anthropological characters with unusual situations. New Zealand publisher Richard Fairgray discusses the police procedural dinosaur comic Blastosaurus which he draws and co-writes and his imprint Square Planet Comics, in an interview recorded at London Film and Comic Con (which returns to Olympia today and tomorrow).
Also, Alex talks to Australian artist Nicki Greenberg about her full length adaptations of The Great Gatsby and Hamlet, and her shorter comics on being a cartoonist and finding a zombie in your attic! Originally broadcast 16th July 2015 on Resonance 104.4 FM.
