In the third of a trilogy of shows about depictions of lives on the comic book page, Alex Fitch talks to the authors of two of 2012's most acclaimed graphic novels. Glyn Dillon discusses The Nao of Brown, his long awaited return to comics after much loved contributions to strips published by Deadline and Vertigo in the 1990s. Dillon's graphic novel depicts the life of an OCD sufferer who channels her creativity into toys, relationships and storytelling...
Alex also talks to Joff Winterhart, writer / artist of Days of the Bagnold Summer, an affectionate, warts and all depiction of six weeks in the life of a dissolutioned 15 year old and his long suffering mother as they try to endure the summer holidays together. Joff discusses the history of the book, how it relates to his animation work and music, and his feelings about the book's nomination as one of the first two graphic novels to be short listed for the Costa Awards.
(Panel Borders will return in January with a month of shows looking at the 25th anniversary of John Constantine: Hellblazer)
