Author Alan Cowsill launches Marvel UK-skewed podcast, Last Geek in Space

Last Geek in Space Podcast Author, comics writer and editor Alan Cowsill has just launched a new podcast, Last Geek in Space, the opening episode featuring an interview with Marvel Comics artist and independent film maker, Kev Hopgood.

Alan intends Last Geek in Space to feature interviews with famous comic book creators about their favourite artists, writers and comics.

“It’s going to have a heavy Marvel UK link,” says Alan. “We’re starting with Kev Hopgood and have a few other British artists and writers lined up.

“I’ll also be talking to designers and folk a lot of people don’t often hear from about their time at the company and what comics they like…”
