Panel Borders: Garth Ennis' Battlefields

Starting a month of shows about war comics on radio show Panel Borders, Alex Fitch talks to award-winning writer Garth Ennis about his interest in the genre, from the backdrop of conflict in his debut strip Troubled Souls to his exploration of wars throughout the 20th Century and beyond in his series War Stories and Battlefields.

Alex and Garth also discuss his past and forthcoming projects for Avatar, Dynamite and Marvel Comics and there are questions from the audience on the subjects of putting his stories into context for younger readers and the use of drones on the battlefield.

The interview was recorded live at the Imperial War Museum, London as part of the ‘Comics and Conflicts Festival‘ last month.

• Panel Borders: Garth Ennis' Battlefields airs at 5.00pm, Thursday 1st September 2011 on Resonance 104.4 FM (London) / streamed at / extended (70 min) podcast after broadcast at
