Excellent podcast for comic readers and creators

This podcast is brilliant. Molch-R is a great host who knows his stuff about British comics (and comics in general). Always well informed and the interviews and career retrospectives are a treat.

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

D_Bailey ,

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!
