Episode 106 – The Magic of Comics with Scott McCloud!

by Chris Thompson

With Scott McCloud & Dave Gibbons …
After last week’s discussion featuring the Wicked + Divine team of Kieron Gillen & Jamie McKelvie at D.I.C.E. (which you can still listen to here), this time I’m back with comics creator, advocate and theorist Scott McCloud (The Sculptor, Understanding Comics, Zot!) for a very special Q & A session at the Lakes International Comic Art Festival.
Scott and I share some interesting discussion with a packed house, then we have the privilege of introducing the new UK-based charity CLAw (Comics Literacy AWareness) to the world, as well as unveiling their first initiative. It’s an exciting time to be in comics in general, and it captures just a small portion of the magic that is the Lakes Festival.
