We host Steve MacManus, David Bishop, John Tomlinson, Andy Diggle, Alan Barnes, and Matt Smith as they discuss the creation and life of the Megazine, its highs and lows, its relations with 2000 AD, and whether it has achieved its mission to open up the world of Judge Dredd.

    We then take another dive into the archive and back to our very first episode in 2015, with artist Colin MacNeil talking about working on one of the Megazine's first ever stories - 'America'.

    A seminal Judge Dredd artist and a towering figure in British comics, Mick is a remarkably humble and down-to-earth guy who is responsible for the 'big boots' look of Dredd's outfit as well as many iconic covers and key moments for the future's greatest lawman. He also brought a unique look to Sláine and Ro-Busters before going on to co-create the incredible Last American. The 2000 AD Thrill-Cast sits down for a landmark two hour interview with one of the greatest 2000 AD artists of all time.

    As Molch-R is off to recharge his batteries in isolation for a week, on this episode we return to the biggest interview the Thrill-Cast has ever broadcast - the epic chat with John Wagner from 2016! It’s hard to overstate John’s impact on the industry as co-creator of Judge Dredd, Strontium Dog, Button Man, and so much more. In this three hour interview, John discusses his life and career, from the beginnings of the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic, his writing partnership with Alan Grant, why he thinks he’s never made it in American comics, and his thoughts about the future of his greatest creation. It's a feast for the ears, though with some hefty background noise from the pub!

    Dan Abnett and Mark Harrison sci-fi odyssey series, The Out, has become something of a sleeper hit in the pages of 2000 AD. At the furthest edge of the universe, Cyd Finlea is photo-journalist working for the publishers Global Neographic, travelling deep into outer space — otherwise known as THE OUT — and cataloguing the alien societies that she encounters. She left Earth ten years ago and has lost track of how far she is from home, but regardless she keeps going. Dan and Mark discuss the series' serendipitous creation, the influence of 1970s and '80s sci-fi book covers, and how Cyd's journey through The Out tells us something out the here and now.

Great interviews

who knew the droids sounded so human??

This has always been a great podcast but the recent “lockdown tapes” run of podcasts has really upped the game as well as the frequency.

A must for fans of 2000ad iwho want to hear about the writers and artists who create the strips.

continues to be fascinating to this long time reader of the Galaxy’s greatest comic

The Galaxy's Greatest Podcast

2000 AD is well known as the Galaxy’s greatest comic, but this aural feast can easily lay claim to being the Galaxy’s greatest podcast. It is fascinating, insightful, intelligent and funny, and essential listening for any fan of the comics as well as for anyone interested in a career in comics.

Molch-R is a brilliant host and excels at getting the best from his guests, so subscribe and enjoy the ride. Borag Thungg!

Insight into The House of Tharg

Been listening for ages and really love the Thrill-cast, for the wide and varied folk and features from 2000AD that it covers. But it's been the episode covering the announcement of the TV show that's finally got me putting finger to keyboard.

A brilliant couple of interviews by Molch-R with some obviously passionate, proud and fiercely talented folk. If I was excited about the idea of the TV show before I'm really stoked for it now!

Thank you!
