DECOMPRESSED 007: ADAM CADWELL ON BLOOD BLOKES #2

Emerging from the crypt of the British Indie Scene we have Adam Cadwell to talk about the second issue of his turn-of-the-millennium slacker Vampire black-comedy slice-of-life with bloody slices comic. We cover topics including pacing, revisionist approaches to Vampires, verisimilitude, the concept of timelessness, THE GLORY OF THE NINE PANEL GRIDS, Love And Rockets hair-cuts and much more. You can buy Blood Blokes from The Great Beast store, in hard-copy and PDF form. The PDF is only a quid. Barg!
