Panel Borders: The Phoenix
In the first of a new series of Panel Borders, we start a month of shows looking at comic book anthologies with a recording of a panel discussion of the children’s comic The Phoenix. Creators Daniel Hartwell (writer: ‘Pirates of the Pangaea’), Neill Cameron (artist: ‘Pirates of the Pangaea’), Adam Murphy (‘Corpse Talk’), Robin Etherington (writer: ‘Long Gone Don’) and Patrice Aggs (‘Blimpville’) discuss creating serialised comics for children and how the title rose from the ashes of The DFC – hosted by David O’Connell (‘Tozo: The Public Servant’) and recorded live at Caption Festival, Oxford.
