Episode 222: "I feel like a son of 2000 AD" – Liam Sharp

From "gifted child" to million-selling comic artist, Liam Sharp's artistic journey has been one of high hopes and hard work. Beginning his career as an apprentice of legendary The Rise & Fall of The Trigan Empire artist Don Lawrence, Sharp went on to debut at 2000 AD while still in his teens and co-create the precocious homocidal teenager PJ Maybe, before his work saw him propelled to stardom in the comics boom of the 1990s. The Thrill-Cast sits down for a long talk with Sharp following his move back to Britain from the US, discussing his feelings about his career, mental health, his time working with Lawrence, and where he is now.The 2000 AD Thrill-Cast is the award-winning podcast that takes you behind-the-scenes at the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic with creator interviews, panels, and more!

Episode 221: A Tribute to John M Burns

At the very end of 2023, the legendary artist John M Burns sadly passed away. While well known amongst 2000 AD fans for his extensive work on stories including Judge Dredd, The Order, and Nikolai Dante, Burns’ career spanned six decades and endeared him to generations of readers thanks to enthralling and enchanting work on TV tie-ins such as Champion The Wonder Horse, Doctor Who, Mission Impossible, Buck Rogers, Magnum P.I., as well as Dan Dare and Kelpie the Boy Wizard, plus phenominally successful newspaper strips such as The Seekers, Danielle, George & Lynne, Jane, and Modesty Blaise.Whether pen and ink or fully-painted, John's work brought so much joy, evoked so much admiration and respect from fans and his peers alike. A true artist's artist, he was someone whose work is instantly recognisable and someone who maintained the highest quality throughout that extraordinarily long career full of page after page of perfect comic art. In this episode, we pay tribute to this extraordinary talent by talking to just some of the people who knew him – Tim Quinn is a comics writer and editor who worked with John for many years, Sean Phillips is a multi-awardwinning artist, Robbie Morrison is the co-creator and writer of Nikolai Dante, and Paul Duncan is an editor and writer working on a book about John's extraordinary legacy. Together, they paint a vivid picture of the man, his work, and his legacy.

Episode 220: Simon Harrison on Bradley, Revere & beyond

2000 AD has had more than its fair share of artists whose work can be described as "unique" – but few match the distinctive individuality of Simon Harrison.From his first work on the demonicly badly-behaved alien infant Bradley to the lead up to the most iconic moment in Strontium Dog and the fever dream of Revere, Harrison's art was utterly unmistakeable and rewarding. In this episode, Molch-R talks to him about his life and career, from his childhood in south London to visiting battlefields of Ukraine in the name of art. Just like his work, Harrison's views on life and art are fascinating and challenging, but still completely his own.The 2000 AD Thrill-Cast is the award-winning podcast that takes you behind-the-scenes at the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic with creator interviews, panels, and more!

Episode 195: The 2000 AD Thrill-Cast Lockdown Tapes - Arthur Ranson (2018 interview)

It’s the fascinating sixty-eighth episode of The 2000 AD Thrill-Cast Lockdown Tapes!An artist who should need no introduction, Arthur Ranson was a stalwart of British comics from the 1970s with work on licensed properties for Look-in before moving to 2000 AD in the 1980s and quickly establishing himself as one of the seminal artists on Judge Anderson’s solo adventures. His meticulously detailed style brought atmosphere and depth to his work, whether it was adding verve to adaptations of TV classics such as Sapphire & Steel or rendering the gritty streets of Mega-City One in Judge Dredd. In the 1990s, he co-created the noir crime thriller Button Man with John Wagner and the fantastical Mazeworld with Alan Grant, while drawing some of the most pivotal and moving moments in Judge Anderson’s life. He has since retired, but collections of his work have brought on re-evaluations of his work for new generations of comics fans, drawn to the rich detail and extraordinary influences of his work. In this interview from 2018, Molch-R chats with Arthur about his life, his work, and his choices both creative and personal.We then revisit the Thrill-Cast roundtable about Arthur's career and legacy, when Rebellion Publishing’s Head of Books and Comic Books Ben Smith, Hollywood Reporter geek culture correspondent Graeme McMillan, comics journalist John Freeman, and photographer and artist Ellen Rogers join Molch-R to talk about what Arthur’s work for 2000 AD and beyond means to them, why it deserves wider awareness, and the influence it has had on generations of readers and creators.Over the coming weeks the Thrill-Cast will continue to broadcast every week, with both new episodes and favourite interviews from the past six years – so make sure you’re keeping yourselves and your loved ones safe, and stay tuned for more from the Galaxy’s Greatest Podcast!Got a theme or interview you’d like to hear?

Henry Flint interview, Part One

Having established himself as one of the definitive Judge Dredd artists of the the last 20 years thanks to work on Total War, Day of Chaos, Titan, Enceladus, and now The Small House, Henry Flint is a fan favourite artist whose work evokes the classic styles of Mick McMahon and Kevin O'Neill as well as Carlos Ezquerra and Ron Smith.

A tribute to Carlos Ezquerra

Everyone at 2000 AD is still reeling from the news that Carlos Ezquerra has passed away. In this episode of the 2000 AD podcast, we talk to some of the people who knew and worked with him, and just a few of the other 2000 AD creators who were influenced by his incredible work over half a century - Garth Ennis, Matt Smith, Dave Gibbons, Kelvin Gosnell, Jock, Rob Williams, David Baillie, PJ Holden, Simon Fraser and Al Ewing.One of the all-time greatest comic book artists, the Spanish illustrator was one of the titans of 2000 AD. Originally from Zaragoza, Carlos began his career in Barcelona, drawing westerns and war stories for Spanish publishers. Breaking into the UK market on romance titles like Valentine and Mirabelle, he was head-hunted for the new IPC title Battle Picture Weekly where he drew Rat Pack, Major Eazy and El Mestizo.In 1976, he was asked to create a new character, the future lawman Judge Dredd, for a new weekly science fiction comic called 2000 AD. Thanks to his enduring partnership with John Wagner, Dredd was to become one of the world’s most recognisable comic book characters, with Carlos there to apply his inimitable style to some of the biggest stories in the strip’s history, such as The Apocalypse War, Necropolis and Origins.Thanks to Dredd as well as his co-creation of Strontium Dog, created for Starlord in 1978, his adaptation for 2000 AD of Harry Harrison’s Stainless Steel Rat, and thousands upon thousands of comic book pages, Carlos was lauded by readers and creators alike.Modest and unassuming, Carlos was nonetheless a legend whose contribution to the global comic book industry cannot be understated. His distinctive style - characterised by breathtakingly dynamic, high-energy storytelling and the distinctive ridged thick inking that outlined so many key moments - was instantly recognisable.Despite a brush with lung cancer in 2010, he continued to work and, although the cancer returned this year it was believed he was recovering well. His sudden death is a profound loss not just to 2000 AD but to the comic book medium.The 2000 AD Thrill-Cast is the award-winning podcast that takes you behind-the-scenes at the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic!

Arthur Ranson, Part One

An artist who should need no introduction, Arthur Ranson was a stalwart of British comics from the 1970s with work on licensed properties for Look-in before moving to 2000 AD in the 1980s and quickly establishing himself as one of the seminal artists on Judge Anderson's solo adventures.His meticulously detailed style brought atmosphere and depth to his work, whether it was adding verve to adaptations of TV classics such as Sapphire & Steel or rendering the gritty streets of Mega-City One in Judge Dredd.In the 1990s, he co-created the noir crime thriller Button Man with John Wagner and the fantastical Mazeworld with Alan Grant, while drawing some of the most pivotal and moving moments in Judge Anderson's life.He has since retired, but collections of his work have brought on re-evaluations of his work for new generations of comics fans, drawn to the rich detail and extraordinary influences of his work.In the first of a two part interview, Molch-R chats with Arthur about his life, his work, and his choices both creative and personal.

Marney the Fox is the next collection from The Treasury of British Comics imprint and on this week's podcast we take a trip into the countryside with artist John Stokes. Appearing in Buster weekly from June 1974 to September 1976, this Watership Down-style tale followed a lone fox cub’s desperate struggle to survive in a dangerous world.Written by the late Scott Goodall, the series was lavishly illustrated by Stokes, whose remarkable career has seen him go from uncredited work on British children's weekly comics to inking Grant Morrison's The Invisibles. His story is one of changing times and a changing industry, but throughout his work has retained its old school charm and solid workmanship. In this episode, John talks about his childhood amidst the riots in pre-partition India to living on a houseboat to his parallel career creating sets for theatrical productions.The 2000 AD Thrill-Cast is the award-winning podcast that takes you behind-the-scenes at the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic!

Real Roy of the Rovers Stuff: Barrie Tomlinson

Barrie Tomlinson isn't one of the names at the forefront of histories of 2000 AD, but his influence on British comics for 30 years cannot be understated and with the archive of Fleetway/IPC now joining the Galaxy's Greatest Comic at Rebellion it's a great time to hear a different perspective on the seminal period of the 1970s and 1980s.With his uncanny knack for securing celebrity endorsements which saw him rub shoulders with TV and sporting stars alike, Barrie was probably one of the most successful editors in British comics.

He was group editor for 2000 AD and his hands-off approach allowing Steve MacManus and Richard Burton to guide the comic to the great heights of its 1980s heyday.
