One of 2000 AD's creators who should need no introduction, Cam Kennedy has been the artist on some of the most seminal stories in the Galaxy's Greatest Comic, including Judge Dredd, Rogue Trooper, and The VCs.

This interview recording has been kindly provided by Mark Seddon, who run Cam's website www.kennywho.co.uk and art sales.
