Drawing Dublin: an interview with Gerry Hunt


This week the Comic Cast sat down for a cup of tea with comics writer and artist Gerry Hunt. Gerry’s comics include In Dublin City, Streets of Dublin and the recently released Blood Upon the Rose – a retelling of the events of the 1916 Easter Rising published by The O’Brien Press. Here he talks about how he went from architecture to comics, working with BrenB (a frequent colourist of his comics), the importance of Irish made comics being set in Ireland and his next comic about the viking undead. Enjoy.

    Mr Hunt is a legend. I heart his palpable love for the greatest city in the world. Will definitely be picking up his new book.
    Great show lads.

  2. Andrew Judge Says:

    Great interview lads. I really enjoyed listening to Gerry. What an ambassador for Dublin and for comics. He should be made the Mayor of Comics. I hope I’m half as interesting as him when I’m a retired architect.
