Sophie Aldred As Judge Dredd And More…


Steve Cook has an exhibition of photographs of Sophie Aldred, taken back in the Doctor Who days. It launches today at Orbital Comics, with a signing with Aldred this Saturday afternoon.. Here are a few of the more 2000AD comic-book inspired ones. Including our favourite above, ALDREDD. Cook tells me;

In September 1991 I created the fake Megapolitan cover for the back of the Judge Dredd Megazine, starring Sophie Aldred and with cover lines by David Bishop.

This was published, but there were also a couple of variant homages to my favourite magazines, i-D and Vogue that I recently discovered the roughs for. I decided to recreate them as they were originally intended, using the photos I took of Sophie at the time and the original analogue typesetting galleys. With the help of ex-Tharg John Tomlinson who created the snappy cover lines, I've had these printed up for the exhibition.
