Today's show: Tamara Drewe and the Angel Gang!*

Today at 5pm on Resonance 104.4FM - Strip!: Tamara Drewe and the Angel Gang!*

*(it amuses me, anyway, to suggest Tamara has adventures as exciting as her long lost cousin Nancy...)

The first half of today's show is continuing Resonance FM's coverage of the London ComICA festival - the second half of a discussion held at the Comica festival in which Lisa Appignanesi talks to Guardian cartoonist in residence Posy Simmonds about the collection of her strips from the newspaper which has just been published as a harback graphic novel Tamara Drewe by Jonathan Cape. The talk was recorded live at the ICA last month. Please note: this discussion will not be podcast, so please tune in if you want to catch it.

In the second half of the show you'll hear an interview that Duncan Nott and Alex Fitch conducted at the Birmingham International Comics Show with British novelist and comics writer - Simon Spurrier** - about his work from acclaimed strips in 2000AD and Judge Dredd megazine such as Lobster Random and The Simping Detective to his recent forays into the American market with Gutsville and The Silver Surfer.

**not to be confused with Simon Guerrier or Paul Spurrier (it's getting like that game where you keep changing one letter to make a new word!)
