Comics: Bryan Talbot podcast
Over on the blog for the recently announced new Lakes International Comic Art Festival (due in Kendal in the lovely Lake District of northern England from 18th to 20th October 2013) there’s a podcast from one of those involved, the excellent Bryan Talbot (who I know has a great love for the Lake District, as well as setting part of his powerful Tale of One Bad Rat there), discussing the new comics festival. And there’s more audio goodness to be had – Bryan and Mary Talbot have a couple of other podcasts on there, one discussing their recent award-winning Dotter of Her Father’s Eyes (first comics work to win the Costa literary award, go team comics! Also one of my personal Best of the Year picks), and another with them discussing the superb and moving Tale of One Bad Rat. Bookmark the Lakes sites now for more content to come as well as updates on events and guests expected at the actual festival (and, as with the Inverness Hi-Ex, how nice to see another comics bash being held away from the usual main cities).
