    Hello and welcome to Orbital In Conversation – the podcast of Orbital Comics in central London! We’re very excited to be part of the team at Multiversity Comics as not only are they an excellent group of people, but they share a similar level of taste and sensibility … It’s a great fit.

    This week Chris chats with legendary cartoonist Bill Griffith about his new graphic novel Invisible Ink: My Mother’s Secret Love Affair with a Famous Cartoonist from Fantagraphics. They discuss what the book means to Bill, why now was the time for his first original graphic novel, how it feels to become a character in your own story, and what he’s learned about himself (and his family) in the process. It’s that Ding Dong Daddy from Dingburg acknowledging the undeniable influence of his Mom!

    Chris Thompson

    Chris Thompson emerged from the womb suckling on the teat of popular culture. He loves comics and films in equal measure (though not always together) and genuinely enjoys subtitled features, particularly French ones. When not indulging his passions, he’s working with them as a brand manager for Titan Comics – clearly not the best work-life balance one could have. In the rare moments he’s not working, Chris enjoys travel and is often headed to a festival or event of some kind.
