Welcome to the forty-second episode of The Lockdown Tapes as The 2000 AD Thrill-Cast continues to broadcast the joys of Thrill-power during the COVID-19 pandemic! Got a theme or interview you’d like to hear? Let us know at thrillcast@2000AD.com
From his working class roots in Sheffield to working on the latest Hollywood blockbuster, the career of Greg Staples has been anything but typical. After brief stints as a sign painter and in an architect's office, he began working for 2000 AD after Simon Bisley spotted his talent and introduced him to then-editor Richard Burton. He worked on Judge Dredd, Sláine, and Sinister Dexter before moving into video games, movie concept work, and creating art for the globally-successful card game Magic: The Gathering. Greg chats to the Thrill-Cast about the lessons he's learnt along the way and how his perspective on his work and interests has kept him grounded.
