Panel Borders: British Noir
Continuing our month long look at the crossover between comics and film, Alex Fitch talks to Paul Tanter, the writer of the ‘Jack Says‘ trilogy of British films noir. To accompany the first film, Paul wrote a prequel graphic novel ‘Jack Said‘ which in turn was filmed after the success of the first movie. Paul then wrote a graphic novel sequel ‘Jack Falls‘, which like the first book is illustrated by Mexican cartoonist and animator Oscar Alvarado and now is also entering preproduction as a motion picture.
