“We’re excited to see the Cartoon Museum focus on Judge Dredd and the artists who have made him come alive for millions of readers over the past forty-five years,” said Jason Kingsley OBE, CEO of Rebellion.
The Cartoon Museum is set to open a special exhibition celebrating the 45th anniversary of Judge Dredd and 2000 AD.
The exhibition explores Judge Dredd, the longest-running 2000 AD character, and the ways the character has been reinterpreted by different artists over the past 45 years.
“We are excited to showcase one of the most iconic British comic characters of all time, charting how the art of Judge Dredd has changed constantly since he first appeared in Prog 2, but how the Judge himself has always stayed the same as he has passed through the pencils of countless incredible artists,” said Joe Sullivan, Director of The Cartoon Museum.
“This exhibition gives a window back in time to see how comic art has changed since Dredd first appeared – undoubtedly many digital tools used regularly by artists now could have easily featured in the pages of a 1970s copy of 2000 AD as ‘sci-fi tech’! Working with Rebellion has been a pleasure, and we are thrilled to be part of 2000 AD’s 45th anniversary celebrations.”
Rebellion plans to mark the milestone over the coming weeks with special collections, signing events, and online celebrations.
Jason Kingsley OBE, CEO of Rebellion, added: “It’s been thrilling to see this exhibition come together for our special anniversary year. As custodians of 2000 AD for more than two decades, we’re excited to see the Cartoon Museum focus on Judge Dredd and the artists who have made him come alive for millions of readers over the past forty-five years.
“Such a showcase will be great opportunity for people to see how such an iconic character has been interpreted over the years but has always remained true to its core identity and look.”
