Great British Comics:
Steve Bell & Bryan Talbot



Steve Bell‘s sharp-as-a-tack If… strips in The Guardian continue to skewer everything from the Muhammad cartoon riots of 2006 to the ConLibDemolition. Bryan Talbot is celebrated as this country’s father of modern graphic novels, from Luther Arkwright and Tale of One Bad Rat to Alice in Sunderland and Grandville. Two of Britain’s most brilliant graphic storytellers swap tales of their prolific careers, from their underground comix origins to their latest full-colour hardcovers, If… Burst Out and Grandville - Mon Amour.
