    While the first name in British comics is undoubtedly “2000 AD”, Greg recently got a chance to talk with a representative of the other big player in comics across the pond: Chris Thompson, Brand Manager for Titan Comics. For over 35 years, Titan has brought two different areas of books to its British audience: film & TV tie-ins, and graphic novels. Just this month sees the return of Jack Kirby & Joe Simon’s “Fighting American” and iconic science fiction hero Dan Dare, but also the launch of Statix Press, an initiative by the publisher to bring a diverse selection of European comics to English-speaking readers. In his role as Brand Manager, Chris is definitely THE person to talk to when it comes to Titan. But this being Robots, Greg also digs a little in Chris’ backstory and how he went from young comics reader to the Eisner-winning bon vivant you hear today (and on his Multiversity Comics podcast Pop Culture Hound.

    (Note: This episode was recorded before the announcement of Titan acquiring the rights to publish comics based on the classic TV series The Prisoner.)

    Greg Matiasevich has read enough author bios that he should be better at coming up with one for himself, yet surprisingly isn't. However, the years of comic reading his parents said would never pay off obviously have, so we'll cut him some slack on that. He lives in Baltimore, co-hosts (with Mike Romeo) the Robots From Tomorrow podcast, posts on his Tumblr blog, and can be followed on Twitter at @GregMatiasevich.
