Join Mike Molcher and special guest David Roach as they discuss the gorgeous new book A Very British Affair

Join Mike Molcher interviewing special guest David Roach to discuss his new book.

A Very British Affair charts the stratospheric rise of romance comics in post-war Britain with a selection of the greatest romance comics ever printed in the UK. Featuring an eclectic mix of artists from Spain, Italy and the UK, this collection unearths the sensual art and emotional writing which delighted generations of comics readers.

Featuring over 50 comics stories - many of which have never been reprinted before - this lavish book is a stunning tribute to the often uncredited creators who crafted an industry of love. Roach shines a spotlight on the Italian and Spanish artists who dominated romance, as well as the genre's forgotten female contributors, like Jenny Butterworth, Pat Tourett and Diane Gabbott plus a wealth of other artists too numerous for the wordcount here!

\"If American romance comics had been as good as the British ones in this book, I'd have continued to buy comics\" - Trina Robbins
