One of 2000 AD's creators who should need no introduction, Cam Kennedy has been the artist on some of the most seminal stories in the Galaxy's Greatest Comic, including Judge Dredd, Rogue Trooper, and The VCs.

A huge influence on generations of comic book artists, Kennedy's work merged the gritty style of war comics with a knack for design that gave his work a dynamic - although grounded - simplicity.

Now a resident of Orkney, Kennedy has struggled with his eyesight and has sadly had to give up professional work. In this interview, he talks about his career and the evolving challenges of being a comic book artist.

This interview recording has been kindly provided by Mark Seddon, who run Cam's website www.kennywho.co.uk and art sales.

As an extra bonus, we present Cam's first Judge Dredd story, The Suspect, from 2000 AD Prog 342 in 1983, reprinted in Judge Dredd: The Complete Case Files 07
