At the end of April, Garen Ewing came along to Cartoon County for an informal chat amongst fellow comic creators the Cricketers pub in Brighton.

We mostly talked about his series The Adventures of Julius Chancer: The Rainbow Orchid, published by Egmont.  Book Two is due in July with Book One available now and you could win a copy (see below).  The conversation covered a number of topics including Tin Tin, Asterix, The DFC, Class and British comics and off into a discussion about digital comics which everyone has an opinion on which is why this podcast is so long…  well,
