The Return of Panel Borders

Alex Fitch dropped us a line to ask us if we wouldn’t mind reminding folks that his radio show Panel Borders returns to the airwaves of resonancefm tomorrow (Thursday 2nd September) which of course was no problem.

Check out the episode blurb below and check out the Panel Borders website here.

Panel Borders: Xpat heroes

Starting a new series of the UK’s only weekly radio show about comics, now under a new (old) name, we have a month of shows looking at the ‘British Invasion’ of UK creators who have worked on American and American-style superhero titles.

In this week’s show, Alex Fitch talks to Chris Claremont, a veteran comics writer born in London who became one of the most prolific and popular American comic book writers of the 20th century, most famous for a 16 year sojourn writing the Uncanny X-Men from 1975 – 1991, with his last few issues selling in the region of 8 million copies each.

In the interview, we’re focusing on a superhero Chris created for the UK market – Captain Britain – in 1976 and his more experimental X-Men spin off – New Mutants – which he created in 1982 and returned to writing last month.

Also, in a 60 second (!) interview recorded at the premiere of Scott Pilgrim vs. the world in London, Alex talks to British director Edgar Wright about bringing a different kind of superhero to the screen.

5pm, Resonance 104.4 FM (London) / www.resonancefm.com, Thursday 2nd September 2010

best wishes,
Alex
