Charlie Adlard, artist on The Walking Dead and  and co-creator of many of the major characters that have been used in AMC’s hit TV show of the same name was at Waterstones in Tottenham Court Road, London on Monday, in a Q and A interview hosted by Jonathan Ross.

He spoke about working on a major comic series, collaborating with Robert Kirkman and more. Here’s the audio from that talk courtesy of  Tripwire editor-in-chief Joel Meadows, who has kindly let us share one of his photographs from the event.


Beat known for his work on books such as The Walking Dead and Savage, Charlie’s credits include White Death with Robbie Morrison and 2000AD series including “Judge Dredd” and “Armitage”.

Apart from his work in The Walking Dead, a project he’s been working on since 2004, he’s best known for his work on The X-Files (for Topps) and Astronauts in Trouble (for AiT/Planet Lar). He also illustrated a graphic novel, Playing the Game, written by Nobel Prize winner Doris Lessing and has recently been back working with Robbie Morrison on a short story for the Lakes International Comic Art Festival’s 14-18 NOW TRACES anthology.
