'British Mavericks' radio interview
Alex Fitch: "In the concluding show of the 'British Mavericks' series, which focuses on artists whose work is surprisingly avant-garde for the mainstream, I talk to comic book artist and graphic designer Rian Hughes about his work, from his early days in the small press and discovering European comics through Escape magazine to working on 2000AD and its spin off title, Revolver."
