Welcome to the sunlit uplands of the seventy-fourth episode of The 2000 AD Thrill-Cast Lockdown Tapes!

On this episode of the Galaxy’s Greatest Podcast we talk to four of 2000 AD's unsung heroes. 

Gary Caldwell and Chris Blythe are two of 2000 AD‘s longest-serving colourists. Gary’s biggest body of work for 2000 AD was on Nikolai Dante while Chris is an award-nominated colourist who regularly works on Judge Dredd as well as many other series. They chat to host Molch-R about the process behind colouring comics, the tricks of the trade that they use that many readers may not even notice, and what it’s like to work with such a wide range of artistic styles.

We then chat to letterers Simon Bowland and the legendary Annie Parkhouse about the invisible art of comic book lettering as we honour this often overlooked part of the comics industry, from the old days of paste and scalpels to modern computer techniques.

The Thrill-Cast continues to broadcast every week, with both new episodes and favourite interviews from the past six years – so make sure you’re keeping yourselves and your loved ones safe, and stay tuned for more from the Galaxy’s Greatest Podcast!
