On this episode we chat to writer Simon Spurrier. Simon has written for a wide range of comics from 2000AD to the Sandman to one of our favourites, The Labyrinth. He has also worked on TV scripts which is one of the topics we discuss with him. Simon talks openly about being a writer and the challenges of putting your work out there.
Pete talks about his pitching experience which is a valuable insight into comic creators challenges, Mike starts a 3 part series looking at the history of Dungeons and Dragons… and comics. The Lakes Festival this year will include an RPG style event so this fits perfectly with that. Tom reviews David Coopers panel a day comic The Price.
Ian and Nikki have a look at the new aka Fanzine which is Scotland’s longest running fanzine. Finally we look at the next lot of announced European guests coming to the festival in October. Find out more here.
