A week ago, Mike Hoffman and I were interviewed on the 2000AD website about bringing back Ken Reid’s classic Frankie Stein strip for the Cor!! Buster Humour Special.
Here’s a little excerpt:
Characters like Frankie, along with the rest of the classics in the Cor!! & Buster Special are all much-loved, well remembered strips, done by some genuine comic legends. Did you have any sense of that weight of history pressing down as you tackled Frankie?
Cavan Scott: There’s always trepidation when taking on a beloved character written by giants in the field. I’ve felt it whether I’m writing Judge Dredd, Princess Leia, Doctor Who or Minnie the Minx. But that trepidation is good. It makes you want to do your best work!
