Rebellion Releases – 20 March 2024

At the very end of 2023, the legendary artist John M Burns sadly passed away. While well known amongst 2000 AD fans for his extensive work on stories including Judge Dredd, The Order, and Nikolai Dante, Burns’ career spanned six decades and endeared him to generations of readers thanks to enthralling and enchanting work on TV tie-ins such as Champion The Wonder Horse, Doctor Who, Mission Impossible, Buck Rogers, Magnum P.I., as well as Dan Dare and Kelpie the Boy Wizard, plus phenomenally successful newspaper strips such as The Seekers, Danielle, George & Lynne, Jane, and Modesty Blaise.

Whether pen and ink or fully-painted, John’s work brought so much joy, evoked so much admiration and respect from fans and his peers alike. A true artist’s artist, he was someone whose work is instantly recognisable and someone who maintained the highest quality throughout that extraordinarily long career full of page after page of perfect comic art.

In the latest episode of the 2000AD Thrill-Cast, Michael Molcher and a panel of guests – Tim Quinn is a comics writer and editor who worked with John for many years, Sean Phillips is a multi-award winning artist, Robbie Morrison is the co-creator and writer of Nikolai Dante, and Paul Duncan is an editor and writer working on a book about John’s extraordinary legacy – pay tribute to this extraordinary talent. Together, they paint a vivid picture of the man, his work, and his legacy.

You can find the latest Thrill-Cast here, or via your normal podcast feeds.
