And have a listen to the latest Comic Scene podcast episode where Pat Mills discusses, among other things, the new Defoe story line and artist.

Episode 89 is my chat with Ben K Sy from the 1977-2000AD Facebook group. We chat about Origins, and the exciting stuff going on in one of the friendliest 2000AD groups around.

Few audio issues on this episode which I’ve done my best with.

I’m joined by Alan Fisher from Yorkshire by way of sunny California to discuss Harry Absalom by Rennie and Trevallion. Cleaning up his manor, one bleedin’ demon at a time!

Cheers. It’s having guests called Paul that is the secret.  ;)

Feast your eyes on the wonders of the opening page of El Mestizo. Paul's first grail pick

Nearly 3 years of the podcast?!
Thanks for El Mestizo, this one was a bit of a revelation, Paul's enthusiasm for this book was evident. In Carlos' meandering art style, this era might be my personal favourite. It's glorious.

Great episodes recently, Comic Scene and Simping Detective were standouts for me.
Tony's story was strange to hear, his first/last progs - before the wilderness years - match mine almost to the week, and our University days tie up too (the one round the corner, not one of the biggies).

Damian's take on Simping Detective was illuminating, his story is pretty unusual. Possibly the first Mega-Collection book I read, the art there floored me too. Most of the time it's art over story for me and it was easy to relate to his love for the book.

Thanks Eamonn! Keep it up...

Thanks, Fungus. Yes, the podcast will be 3 at the end of May!

And coming up in the next few weeks are The Thirteenth Floor, Rok of the Reds, and some more Nemesis.
