In case you missed it last week, Darryl Cunningham was interviewed by Claudia Hammond for BBC Radio 4’s All in the Mind. Focusing on the personal and professional experiences that led Darryl to create Psychiatric Tales, the interview is a succinct yet revealing conversation that will appeal to existing fans as well as newcomers to his work. As of writing, the episode is still available on the BBC iPlayer and also as part of the BBC’s Medical Matters podcast.
Just as exciting (if not more), in the wake of the interview, Psychiatric Tales shot to #1 in Amazon.co.uk’s Graphic Novel sales chart. Leapfrogging over the heads of Maus, The Walking Dead, Chester Brown, and even Batman himself, it really cements the already great response the book has received over the past 10 months, as well as the anticipation for the upcoming sequel. We’re still celebrating at Blank Slate HQ now.
Darryl’s follow-up, Psychiatric Tales 2, is due for release from Blank Slate later this year/ early 2012, and his collection of stories for children, Uncle Bob Adventures, should be hitting stores in August. Be sure to keep an eye on our upcoming releases page and Twitter/Facebook feeds for more info as we have it.
