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.
