Reality Check: Comics versus Film

Cartoonist Woodrow Phoenix
This year's cinematic interest in comic book adaptations shows no sign of slowing down with adaptations of Scott Pilgrim vs. the world and Tamara Drewe hitting screens over the next few weeks. To coincide with this, the SciFi London festival team have released the next in their series of podcasts recorded in front of a live audience at this year's Sci-Fi London festival.

In it, Alex Fitch talks to cartoonist Woodrow Phoenix and film maker Howard Webster about the dialogue between comics. film and TV, looking at Woodrow's work adapting his comic Pants Ant for the Cartoon Network and Howard's interactive webcomic The Many Worlds of Jonas Moore. The podcast also features a brief appearance by Marcus Gilbert (Biggles / Army of Darkness) talking about his roles in Howard's comics.
