Ian Edginton Constructs A "Brass Sun" for "2000 AD"
Edginton spoke with CBR News about his new "2000 AD" steampunk fantasy "Brass Sun," working with artists and co-creators I.N.J. Culbard and D'Israeli on the project and how he broke into comics.

Loving Brass Sun already and delighted to hear its got legs, all be they clockwork.
Very intrigued that Red Seas has a 'replacement' wonder if its with Steve Yeowell as well. Much like Dante I'll miss it when its gone but glad it'll have an ending.
Stevie’ s been jazzed about this since Edgy first mentioned a clockwork orrery cosmology as a possible gaming IP a few years back.
To learn that he’s once more teamed with regular collaborators Matt “Every year that US comics doesn’t recognise his genius is a great year for 2000ad” Brooker aka D’Israeli & The New Deadwardian’s INJ Culbard (you NEED their SelfMadeHero published adaptation of A Princess of Mars) well... That's just the icing on the cake, isn't it?
As per Colin, also very excited about Ian & Steve Yeowell's Red Seas replacement. Something a bit more contemporary involving Isaac Newton in a Great British TV SF mode perhaps?
Oh, & Edgy's paying tribute to Brett Ewins brought a tear to the eye.
That's one fine interview & no mistake.
As much as I enjoyed the opening episode of Brass Sun - long may it run and without these infernal year-long gaps between stories! - I'm even more thrilled to read that "Edgy" (love it, Stevie) is hard at work on new Stickleback and Ampney Crucis adventures. That is great news!
