John Wagner talks about Battle Picture Weekly

A rather neat little follow up to the Hook Jaw solicitation, this. David Bishop interviewed the mighty John Wager in 2003 about his part in the launch of Battle - which incorporated Action in 1977, and debuted Charley's War in 1979. This is the first part of his transcript.

David's history of 2000AD, Thrill Power Overload is due for release next month.

UPDATE: ohhh, part two.


  1. Thanks for the plug, Lee. Glas to see your spelling is almost as bad as mine - John Wager indeed! I pimped the transcript on the 2000 AD forum today and called him John Wanger.


  2. I'm sure he saw it as a compliment.

  3. Let's not forget his sometime co-writer Part Mills.

  4. And of course, his long time partner, Anal Grunt.

    Oh yes I did.
