The 2000 AD Thrill-Cast Lockdown Tapes – Arthur Ranson (2018 interview)

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

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, geek culture reporter 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.

The 2000 AD Thrill-Cast Lockdown Tapes – Trevor Hairsine

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

Welcome to the fantastical flying sixty-fifth episode of the 2000 AD Thrill-Cast Lockdown Tapes!

From Judge Dredd to Mercy Heights, from Strontium Dogs to Harmony, with his Mick McMahon-influenced style and solid storytelling Trevor Hairsine’s time at 2000 AD in the 1990s was filled with variety, but it was the politically-charged Cla$$war with Rob Williams that helped bring him to the attention of Marvel, where he’s gone from ‘young gun’ to seasoned veteran. The 2000 AD Thrill-Cast chats extensively to Trevor about his career, his battle with a lack of confidence in his own abilities, and living with Henry Flint sleeping in the corner.
