Panel Borders: Buying and Selling comics

Continuing their month long look at comic book shops, radio show Panel Borders has interviews with the proprietors of a couple of venues that are unlike your average comic shop.

Veteran publisher Mike Lake and colleague Colin Strawbridge talk to Dickon Harris about their regular stall selling classic comics at the monthly Royal National Hotel Comic Mart off Russell Square.

Also, in an interview recorded at last week’s Caption festival in Oxford, Alex Fitch talks to comic book creator Pete Renshaw, author of Burke and Hare: The West Port Murders, about the Plan B, the graphic novels and coffee shop that he co-owns in Glasgow.

• Panel Borders: Buying and Selling comics airs at 5.00pm, Thursday 11/08/11, Resonance 104.4 FM (London) / streamed at / podcast after broadcast at
