Panel Borders: Young graphic novelists, Spring 2012

Panel Borders: Young graphic novelists, Spring 2012

As part of our month of episodes on British comics, we have our twice yearly look at a pair of young graphic novelists. Warwick Johnson Cadwell has garnered a great reputation for his small press work and contributions to short story collections, and Dickon Harris talks to WJC about his first graphic novel, Gungle, to be published in the near future by Blank Slate Books. Also, Alex Fitch talks to artist Jennie Gyllblad who, following a number of web comics and self-published collaborations with writer Corey Brotherson, has just finished The Arrival, the first of a three volume steam-punk graphic novel series Clockwork Watch curated by film-maker Yomi Ayeni.
