Panel Borders: Ricky Rouse has a Gun

Ricky Rouse Gets A Gun


Continuing a month of shows about the work of comic book creators who mix together different cultures and mediums in their work, on this week’s Panel Borders radio show Alex Fitch talks to playwright and film maker Jörg Tittel about writing his debut graphic novel Ricky Rouse has a Gun, a satire on Western movie violence and China’s ‘knock-off economy’, published by SelfMadeHero.

Fitch and Tittel discuss how the project evolved from a film script to a graphic novel, the process of working with artist John Aggs and whether the writer’s own background of an upbringing in different cultures fed in to the story on the page. (Recorded at Cartoon County, Brighton)
