This is part of 6 Music's Paperback Writers: Graphic Content series, focussing on where the worlds of comics and music collide. Alan Moore kicked things off on the 4th October, with the legendary comic book writer sharing two hours of his favourite music. He talked to producer and writer Richard Norris about the important part it's played in his life. Author Neil Gaiman was in the hot seat on Sunday 6th October, with an hour of music that has shaped him as a person and a writer. And the UK's current Comics Laureate Hannah Berry was in charge of the music last Sunday.
