SciFiNow: Interviews with Bryan Talbot, Jean-Marc Rochette, and Benjamin Legrand

Some bumper comics content in this month's issue (#89) of SciFiNow magazine, featuring my interviews with comic legend Bryan Talbot on all things Grandville and a history of the graphic novel in the UK, and with Jean-Marc Rochette and Benjamin Legrand on the hit film Snowpiercer based on their co-creation. 

Legrand is the writer of the second and third Le Transperceneige (Snowpiercer) books, while Rochette is the artist of all three, and both men have had unique access to the film which stars Chris Evans and Tilda Swinton and is directed by Bong Joon-Ho (The Host, Mother). We discuss everything from the editing woes of the Weinstein distribution to Rochette's art techniques, and there's a short guide to some other European comics that are a) ripe for adaptation and b) absolute must reads!

Talbot is of course the creator of an astounding number of classic comics, from Luther Arkwright to Grandville and every Alice in Sunderland and Tale of One Bad Rat in between. Chatting with Bryan was a real highlight of my interview work thus far, and I hope my feature does justice to a man who is far too modest.

You can read the full features in the current issue of SciFiNow which can also be bought digitally here.
