Everything Comes Back to 2000AD

What a good way to end the year (or is it?) with another blast from the past!
Rich and Flint also review and issue of 'Zarjaz' in this one. And Flint is WRONG...not once but TWICE! (Oh, the Huge Manatee!)
The baddy does return in MACH 1 and he pronounces Rennies name wrong! Steve Ross will be thrilled if he listens to this one. But he doesn't get paid for that!

One of the worst covers of the year followed by some of the worst Dredd artwork in recent memory! What's up with the lettering in 'Slaine'? 'Rebellion' take a 2000ad classic 'Halo Jones' and ruin it by 'coloring' it.  I'm sure Alan Moore is probably putting together a powerful hex on the decision makers behind this. On a positive note...'Strangers Things 2' was awesome. No spoilers.

I struggled to have an introduction for this legendary artist and in the end...couldn't really describe how amazing this comic strip genius is. I'll admit that I'm in awe of this man. To me he's a giant of UK comics. The audio quality is a bit muffled because the interview was conducted over a landline...but stick with it. Ian was a lot of fun to interview...and had a lot of interesting things to say.  

We originally had different plans for the landmark episode 300 but this was too good not to publish in its place.
