- in conversation with Luke Elworthy

Jonathan reflects on what makes a great comic in a discussion about his latest book The Inkberg Enigma, an exciting mystery adventure in the style of Tintin and Terry and the Gunrunners.

He shares some of the storytelling – and life – lessons he learned moving from film-making to comic-making (and back).
