On this housebound recorded episode we chat to The Mighty One himself, ex-2000AD editor Steve MacManus. Steve’s comic career spans from 1973 to 2011, in particular he spent from 1979 to 1986 as editor of 2000AD. This era is classed as the golden era of the comic and Steve explains why he felt this was plus he discusses all aspects of his career. You can read more about his career and working for 2000AD in his book The Mighty One.
