Episode 189 – Jean Yves Mitton & The Silver Surfer!

by Chris Thompson

With Jean Yves Mitton …
 
In the penultimate episode of our extensive Angoulême coverage, Chris & Karl sit down to discuss Jean Yves Mitton and his work on the Silver Surfer, which appeared in the never-reprinted Nova issues 25 & 26.
 
Then, at long last, we present Chris’ long overdue interview with Jean Yves – taking in his extensive career and work. This interview is primarily in French with English translations, but should be easy to follow.
