These days still working in publishing, on projects that include the Marvel Fact Files, he talks to Alan Cowsill about his career and selects the comics and artwork he’d take with him when he’s blasted into the unknown as the last geek in space.

The Last Geek in Space is a gem of a podcast, focused at present on creators who worked at Marvel UK alongside Alan. Well worth a listen!
