Everyone at 2000 AD is still reeling from the news that Carlos Ezquerra has passed away. In this episode of the 2000 AD podcast, we talk to some of the people who knew and worked with him, and just a few of the other 2000 AD creators who were influenced by his incredible work over half a century - Garth Ennis, Matt Smith, Dave Gibbons, Kelvin Gosnell, Jock, Rob Williams, David Baillie, PJ Holden, Simon Fraser and Al Ewing.

One of the all-time greatest comic book artists, the Spanish illustrator was one of the titans of 2000 AD. Originally from Zaragoza, Carlos began his career in Barcelona, drawing westerns and war stories for Spanish publishers. Breaking into the UK market on romance titles like Valentine and Mirabelle, he was head-hunted for the new IPC title Battle Picture Weekly where he drew Rat Pack, Major Eazy and El Mestizo.

In 1976, he was asked to create a new character, the future lawman Judge Dredd, for a new weekly science fiction comic called 2000 AD. Thanks to his enduring partnership with John Wagner, Dredd was to become one of the world’s most recognisable comic book characters, with Carlos there to apply his inimitable style to some of the biggest stories in the strip’s history, such as The Apocalypse War, Necropolis and Origins.

Thanks to Dredd as well as his co-creation of Strontium Dog, created for Starlord in 1978, his adaptation for 2000 AD of Harry Harrison’s Stainless Steel Rat, and thousands upon thousands of comic book pages, Carlos was lauded by readers and creators alike.

Modest and unassuming, Carlos was nonetheless a legend whose contribution to the global comic book industry cannot be understated. His distinctive style - characterised by breathtakingly dynamic, high-energy storytelling and the distinctive ridged thick inking that outlined so many key moments - was instantly recognisable.

Despite a brush with lung cancer in 2010, he continued to work and, although the cancer returned this year it was believed he was recovering well. His sudden death is a profound loss not just to 2000 AD but to the comic book medium.

This fortnight's episode begins on an incredibly sad note, as we say goodbye to Carlos Ezquerra. The next episode of the Thrill-Cast will be dedicated to him and his legacy.

One of the highlights of the droids' year, the Thought Bubble convention in Leeds is a celebration of the comic book medium and an ideal opportunity for 2000 AD to engage with readers old and new. This year, host Molch-R welcomed droids Guy Adams (Hope), Lizzie Boyle (Scream! & Misty Special), Laura Bailey (Demarco P.I.), Paul Williams (Future Shocks), Leah Moore & John Reppion (Storm Warning) to the 2000 AD panels to discuss what's in store for readers, their creative processes, and creating new characters for 2000 AD, as well as some announcements about forthcoming Thrills! Plus, Every year, 2000 AD gives new writers and artists the chance to get their first work for the Galaxy's Greatest Comic. Prospective art droids have their work scrutinised while would-be writers must pitch their own original Future Shock in just two minutes! They're not for the faint of heart but the competitions have launched the professional careers of some of the newest talent to grace the pages of 2000 AD. This year, the script competition - judge by former script competition winners Laura Bailey (Demaro P.I.) and Rory McConville (Devlin Waugh) with 2000 AD editor Matt Smith and Rob Williams (Judge Dredd) - got through 12 separate entries, ranging from the wicked to the sublime! There was advice aplenty, as the judges sifted through the entries and chose their favourite. Listen as would-be writers pitch their ideas and discover who this year's winner was!

He's the mad genius behind Zombo, Damnation Station, and the Zaucer of Zilk - and now he's in the pub, talking to the 2000 AD Thrill-Cast!

Bringing a unique new voice to 2000 AD, his vivid imagination and dark humour-tinged stories quickly established him as one of 2000 AD's most popular writers and a regular on Judge Dredd, where he worked with Si Spurrier and Rob Williams on the hugely successful Judge Dredd crossover epic, Trifecta.

With his on-going success with Marvel Comics, Ewing sits down with Molch-R to discuss his beginnings as a writer, his preferred version of 'The Marvel Method', his thoughts on continuity, and whether he's coming back to the Galaxy's Greatest Comic.

One of comics’ rock ‘n’ roll superstars, Simon Bisley’s incredible artwork changed the industry forever in the late 1980s with his work on Slaine: The Horned God and Judge Dredd, producing a myriad imitators and launching a decade-long fad for painted comics art.

We round off our coverage of the 2000 AD panels at San Diego Comic Con 2018 with a recording of the 'Spotlight on Simon Bisley' panel as 2000 AD publicity droid Mike Molcher sits down with Simon in front of a live audience to discuss his work, career, and philosophy.

A unique and irrepressible talent, Simon’s work has reached far beyond the page to influence mainstream culture, and while he has always evolved, his style remains timelessly recognizable.

We continue our special run of episodes recorded at San Diego Comic Con 2018 with a recording of the 'The Treasury of British Comics: Can A Forgotten Archive Teach Us About Comics In The 21st Century?' panel from the Thursday of this year's show.

They've influenced some of comics' biggest names, but you've probably never heard of them; this is the hidden history of what was one of the biggest comics industries in the world. From The Leopard from Lime Street to Whizzer and Chips, from horror comics aimed at young girls to warped humor comics for preteens, these weekly anthologies were a unique influence on some of the biggest names in comics and, with their weekly format and cross-genre mashups, form the missing link between American comics, European comics, and manga.

Discover the untold story of British comics with moderator Michael Molcher and guests Rosie Knight (Nerdist) Ben Smith (head of books and comic books for Rebellion), Jack Davisson (translator: Devilman & Showa: A History of Japan) and Graeme McMillan (The Hollywood Reporter).
