79: Necropolis

Dave Heeley from the 1977-2000AD Facebook group joined me at the Birmingham ICE convention to discuss a great Dredd epic that nearly saw the end of the character. This episode was recorded before the sad news of the passing of Carlos Ezquerra who was one of the true legends of British comics. His beautiful work on Necropolis is just one of the many stunning creations we have to remember him by.

Find Dave's review work on the Word of the Nerd site, and get your copy of Necropolis from the 2000AD online store, or in a Hachette hardback.
