Panel Borders – Lingua Franca: English language comics in Europe
Commencing our yearly, month-long look at ‘Cross Cultural comics’, Alex Fitch talks to Paul Gravett about co-curating a gallery show on Jack Kirby in Lucerne, Switzerland and the film adaptation of the bande dessinée Largo Winch which was shot mainly in English, even though the film is a French / Belgium co-production. Alex also talks to Francesca Cassavetti, Dan Lester, Sean Azzopardi and Oliver Lambden about their anthology B.A.S.T.A.R.D.S. which was created as a survey of the best small press creators in London for dissemination at the Angoulême comics festival in France at the beginning of the year.
