Panel Borders: Laura and Mike Allred – Pop Art Comics

Starting a month of shows about iconoclastic American comic artists, Panel Borders Alex Fitch talks to husband and wife art team Mike and Laura Allred about their work together from their long running Madman comic, to X-Statics and I, Zombie.

The Allreds’ style has been often described as pop art and Alex discusses the development of this as well as its representation in adaptations of their work such as Christopher Coppola’s film G-Men from Hell.
