Panel Borders: Charlie Adlard and the Walking Dead

Concluding our month of shows looking at depictions of masculinity in America comics, we have an uncut hour long recording of Alex Fitch in conversation with British artist Charlie Adlard about his ongoing zombie comic The Walking Dead, recently turned into a TV series by Frank Darabont, director of The Shawshank Redemption. Alex and Charlie also look at the latter’s work on 2000AD, The X-Files and CodeFlesh plus the evolution of The Walking Dead over the last seven years. The talk was recorded live at the London Print Studio, Harrow Road as part of 2010?s Comica Festival and includes questions from the audience, including festival organiser Paul Gravett.
