A perfect Sunday with... Luke Horsman

Lashings of gravy, 80s adventure romps and things that go bump in the night!

A perfect Sunday with... Luke Horsman

Every week, a top writer, artist or creator reveals how they’d fill their perfect Sunday, sharing their favourite comfort reads, movies, food… anything that would make their weekend great.

Today, it’s the turn of comic artist and my co-creator of 2000AD's Enemy Earth, Luke Horsman.

Luke’s perfect Sunday… brunch

The perfect comfort food for me would probably be a corn beef hash with lashings of gravy. Being a Northern lad, given a chance, I would put gravy on everything. My Dad would always cook this when I was a boy, and it’s something I can't resist if I’m feeling naughty– 'cause it isn’t heathy!

Luke’s perfect Sunday… read

I love Ursula K. Le Guin’s Earthsea series. I would read those over and over again. Such an immersive world she conjured.

Luke’s perfect Sunday… comic

Oh, a tough choice. I would have to say sitting with a stack of Lone Wolf and Cub volumes would be a treat. I just love Goseki Kojima’s artwork and Kazoo Koike's storytelling. That or some classic Walt Simonson Thor. Both have influenced me over the years.

Luke’s perfect Sunday… movie

I would usually say any of the Star Wars films, but as a child of the 80’s, I love nothing more than a good adventure romp. Ridley Scott’s Legend is one close to my heart. Tim Curry as the Devil is just perfect, and deliciously evil.

Luke’s perfect Sunday… TV binge

I don’t get to watch much TV these days, but the last show I truly enjoyed was Foundation, based on the Isaac Asimov book. Top-notch Sci-fi.

Luke’s perfect Sunday… podcast

Love a bit of Uncanny at the moment. Proper ghost stories. Can’t beat it.

Luke’s perfect Sunday… album

Ooh, I’m a bit of an old LP hoarder so this is a tough one. Anything by Bruce Springsteen, probably. It’s the sound of my youth during family Sunday dinners.

Luke’s perfect Sunday… treat

Cheeky pint and a Sunday roast in a cosy pub by a fire. I have the flat cap, all I need now is the whippet!
