Shane Oakley’s Captain Hurricane

In the third of three exclusive features marking the recent release of Titan and Wildstorm’s Albion collection — interviews with writers Leah Moore and John Reppion, and IPC’s Andrew Sumner were published earlier this month — artist Shane Oakley offers downthetubes readers a rare interview about his career, his role in the project to revive IPC Media’s legendary comics characters, shares some of his Albion character designs and reveals his future projects.

Special thanks to Shane for doing the interview, persevering with the mis-reading of his e-mails, and, of course, some fabulous comic art!
