Back in March, I was interviewed by the team behind Futureshock! The Story of 2000AD. They were a great bunch to work with and we had a lot of fun.
Some pictures from the day:
Preparing to reveal all on the 2000AD Fleetway film and TV fiasco, back in the 90s – when Strontium Dog was optioned for £1!
They’re already enjoying some anecdotes about past editors. I hope they weren’t secretly recording!
Setting up the hot lights so I dish the dirt – like about the day the 2000AD publisher turned down the poster rights for Star Wars.
Cool questions from Helen prompt me to reveal more. (hint: like the dark years, when they tried to turn it into Loaded, Deadline, Vertigo, or anything other than being true to itself)
Just concluding a rant. It’s amazing how 2000AD creates such passion in all of us. Keep telling yourself “It’s only a comic…It’s only a comic…”
The Futureshock! crew are: Sean Hogan and Helen Mullane (producers), Jim Hinson (executive producer & lighting/camera) and Paul Goodwin (director). Find out more about the documentary project at www.futureshock2000ad.com.
