In Drawing The Beano, the latest Panel Borders podcast, Alex Fitch talks to writers / artists Laura Howell and Hunt Emerson who have contributed a number of strips to The Beano since 2002, including “Little Plum”, “Ratz”, “Minnie the Minx” and more, in an interview recorded at Caption comics festival, Coventry.

Laura discusses moving from the small press to mainstream comics, and Hunt talks about the challenges of drawing kids comics after a career of adaptations of adult literature.

Originally broadcast as the second half of a Clear Spot on Resonance 104.4 FM, 8th December 2015, this is the fourth of the 12 Podcasts of Christmas.
