Tillie Walden is our guest on the show today. Tillie has created so many amazing books in such a short time. We delve into her short but amazing career, how it came to be and what drives her talent. We also discuss her book Spinning and the use of colours plus why she felt now was the right time to write about her childhood.
We also look back at 2017 and talk about our top 10 graphic novels out this year. We then decide on our individual favourite which may surprise you all. The books we class as our personal top 10 (in no particular order) are:
Kill or Be Killed Volume 2 (Ed Brubaker & Sean Phillips), The Facts of Life (Paula Knight), Spinning (Tillie Walden), A Thousand Coloured Castles (Gareth Brookes), Mann’s Best Friend (Scarlett & Sophie Rickard), Livestock (Hannah Berry), Breaks (Emma Vieceli & Malin Ryden), Graphic Science (Darryl Cunningham), Becoming Unbecoming (Una) and Collecting Sticks (Joe Decie).
Pete and Mike continue there look into the best of 2017 with TV and movies as we do at the end of the show. Subscribe to get the podcast on any podcast app a day early and please leave a review to make us smile.
We have an interview with the wonderful Etherington Brothers. Robin and Lorenzo create some amazing children’s comics as well as bringing the creation process to life for children in their stage show in this episode of the podcast. We talk to the pair about how they began creating comics, working with your brother, their process and how their creative shows came about. It truly is a great interview with both of them and we recommend you track them down next year and watch them perform if you can. If not look out for their kickstarter’s or grab a copy of their work.
We review Ismyre by B. Mure, It’s Hard Being a Girl by Bach and The Complete Adventures of Cholly & Flytrap by Arthur Suydam. We also have a spoilerfree review of Star Wars: The Last Jedi for you fresh from the cinema plus our thoughts on The Crisis on Earth X TV episodes which played over Supergirl, Arrow, The Flash and the Legends of Tomorrow shows and our thoughts of the Fox buy out by Disney.
