New UK Comic Creators Interviews

The fab comics site Read Yourself Raw has just been updated to include previews of new book, comic and manga releases for January 2008, a new essential reading list.

They’ve also drawn our attention to some UK creator interviews and related features on the web. Alan Moore has been discussing The Black Dossier at Comic Book Resources and Mania Comics (Part 1 and Part 2), while Jess Nevins continues his ‘approved’ annotations of The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen series on his web site.

Meanwhile, with the relase of her new collection Tamara Drewe , Posy Simmonds has been chatting with The Daily Telegraph (revealing she’s never happier when eavesdropping on a bus) and Paul Gravett.

Talking of Posy, she’ll be making a rare public appearance and will be signing copies of her new book, Tamara Drewe, at Page 45 in Nottingham on 9 December 2007 between 1pm and 3pm. Further details from the shop’s myspace site.
