Panel Borders: Exploring War in popular comics

Date: 08/09/2011

Description: Continuing our month of shows about war comics, Panel Borders is pleased to present a selection of interviews recorded at the launch of “Draw your Weapons – the art of Commando comics”, a new exhibition at the National Army Museum in Chelsea, as Alex Fitch talks to curator Robert Fleming, current Commando editor Calum Laird, and former editor George Low about the history of the comic and the art on display at the museum. Also in another recording taken from last month’s ‘Comics and conflicts’ festival at the Imperial War Museum, Roger Sabin and Martin Baker give a presentation about the depiction of the Iraq war and PTSD in the US comic strip Doonesbury.

Please note: Martin and Roger’s presentation contains strong language and challenging ideas, so we recommend younger listeners (or parents who share the podcast with younger listeners) stop playback of the podcast after the Commando interviews.
