Flat out! An interview with Maeve Clancy

April 20, 2010

No volcano can twart us and thus the Comic Cast met up with the multi-talented artist Maeve Clancy – creator of the Dublin-based weekly web comic Flatmates. Maeve is an illustrator, animator and paper artist. Here she discusses volume 1 of the forthcoming Flatmates comic book, the process of creating a comic for the web and the making of her wonderful pop-up book featured in the music video for Lisa Hannigans’ ‘Lille’. She also talks about her work as production designer on the RTÉ comedy series Dan & Becs and her forthcoming cut paper exhibition.

The Comic Cast has been rated ‘C’ for comics. This means this podcast may contain reviews of Brian K. Vaughan/Niko Henrichons’ Pride of Baghdad, J.C. Vaughn/Vincent Spencers’ Zombie Proof , Susumu Katsumatas’ Red Snow, Mark Millar/Steve McNivens’ Nemesis and Paul Hornschemeiers’ All and Sundry.  It is also likely to include a review of the film version of Mark Millars’ Kick-Ass and a discussion on it’s violent content, not to mention which other future comic to film adaptations to keep an eye on. The censor also notes that an interview with 28 Days Later artist Declan Shalvey before he departed for New York is featured. Listeners should be accompanied by a parent or  guardian during the comics news section as it features the latest on the Walking Dead TV series, the return of All-Star Batman and Robin and all the goings on in the Irish comics scene this month. It may also contain scenes of a sexual nature. Maybe.
