93: The serious business of comics - with Charles Martin and Jerry Bennett
It's a bit of a departure for us on The Hobcast Bookshow as we delve into the world of comics and graphic storytelling. Charles Martin set up Literati Press in 2010 with aim of creating a home for Oklohoma's burgeoning comic book artists and writers. He admits it took several years and many mistakes before he and his team found their true path as a business, but this is a story of creative perseverance and determination. Charles is joined by artist Jerry Bennett, who has developed a huge following and has been with Literati Press since the beginning. It's a fascinating insight into the art of comic book creation - how do you marry so few words with images to convey the story?
Also this week, Adrian and Rebecca report back from the wonderful Fatal Shore crime day in Shoreham near Brighton, and discuss further worrying news from the U.S that book sales are falling.
