Ever wanted to start reading 2000 AD but didn't know where to begin? Prog 2050 - out on 27th September - is ideal for readers new and old, with seven new stories beginning, plus the return of some old favourites!

On this episode we're delighted to welcome two new voices both to the Thrill-Cast and 2000 AD - Starman writer James Robinson and Hellblazer artist Leonardo Manco - to talk about their revival of classic Rogue Trooper in a special episode in Prog 2050. James talks about getting rejected by 2000 AD in the '90s, his love of classic 2000 AD, and what he wanted to bring to this one-off story, and Leo (with able translation from his son, Augusto) discusses his work and the influences on his version of the blue-skinned Genetic Infantryman.

Then we welcome veteran artdroid Steve Yeowell back to the Thrill-Cast to talk about the special 30th birthday revival of Zenith, in a feature written by 2000 AD editor Matt Smith, what it's like updating the superbrat popstar for the 2010s, and how it feels having grown up with young Robert McDowell.

The 2000 AD Thrill-Cast is the award-winning podcast that takes you behind-the-scenes at the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic! As well as interviewing top creators and famous fans, we bring you announcements, competitions, and much more! You can subscribe to the Thrill-Cast on iTunes or listen now at
