There’s a slightly different episode of the Lakes International Comic Art Festival Podcast on offer this week as the team take an episode off. In place of their usual format, you get the opportunity to listen to a recording of the  “Meet The Mighty One: A Celebration of 2000AD” panel recorded at this year’s Festival.

The panel features former Tharg Steve MacManus and artists Sean Phillips, Duncan Fegredo and Pete Doherty, talking about their work for The Galaxy’s Greatest Comic, hosted by John McShane.

There’s also a quick review of Thor Raganrok and a chat about the just-announced Myriad Editions 2017 First Graphic Novel Competition.
