Panel Borders: New Small Press anthologies
Continuing our month of shows about new British comics, Alex Fitch chats to the editors of two new Small Press anthologies which are launching next month. Mike Medaglia talks about Dot Comics, an anthology title he edits with Elliot Baggott which collects the best examples of online web comics onto the printed page, with the first issue including extracts from Tozo: The Public Servant, Josceline Fenton’s Hemlock and Philippa Rice’s My Cardboard Life. The author of the first of those strips is our second guest this week as David O’Connell talks about his new anthology project ink+PAPER, which will showcase new work by Barnaby Richards, Ellen Lindner, Lizz Lunney, Hugh “Shug” Raine, Cliodhna Lyons, Dan Berry, Joe Decie and many more.
