Future Shocks have been a staple of 2000 AD since 1977, when writer Steve Moore pioneered the short comic book story with a sting in the tail that have seen legendary writers such as Alan Moore, Grant Morrison, and Neil Gaiman hone their craft into the pages of the Galaxy’s Greatest Comics.

The Thrill-Cast talks to Rob and Laurence about Westerns, Starlord, and old 2000 AD annuals, as well as Carlos’ incredible artistic legacy.

And Proteus Vex is back! Michael Carroll and Henry Flint’s high concept sci-fi action series returns to 2000 AD, with Jake Lynch now handling art duties. Inbetween complimenting each other, they chat about Henry’s influence on the strip, how the change in artist has affected the strip’s direction, and what’s in store for their “Jason Bourne in space”!

From his working class roots in Sheffield to working on the latest Hollywood blockbuster, the career of Greg Staples has been anything but typical. After brief stints as a sign painter and in an architect’s office, he began working for 2000 AD after Simon Bisley spotted his talent and introduced him to then-editor Richard Burton. He worked on Judge Dredd, Sláine, and Sinister Dexter before moving into video games, movie concept work, and creating art for the globally-successful card game Magic: The Gathering. Greg chats to the Thrill-Cast about the lessons he’s learnt along the way and how his perspective on his work and interests has kept him grounded.

The 2000 AD Thrill-Cast Lockdown Tapes – Kenneth Niemand // Judge Dredd: Satire & Policing in 2020 panel

On Soundcloud, Spotify, Apple Podcasts, and YouTube – this is the 2000 AD Thrill-Cast!

Writer Kenneth Niemand has arrived at 2000 AD not only brimming with ideas about also with his own authorial voice. Crafting some classic Judge Dredd stories as well as co-creating simian rebel Noam Chimpsky, he and artist Dave Taylor have recently begun the ‘Elseworld’ style reimagining of Dredd in ‘Megatropolis’ in the Judge Dredd Megazine. Although not a fan of interviews, he chats to the Thrill-Cast about his background, his views on Dredd, and what he has planned for the future.

Sadly, this year’s New York Comic Con didn’t take place … at least not in the confines of the Javitt’s Centre. For Reedpop’s online ‘Metaverse’ event, Molch-R gathered together critics Evan Narcisse, Chloe Maveal, and Kelly Kanayama, and Judge Dredd writer Arthur Wyatt for the Judge Dredd: Satire & Policing in 2020 panel. This is the full recording of the panel, which asks what Judge Dredd says about this moment in history, whether the character’s satire still stands up, and how the strip can be viewed in relation to the events in the UK and America.
