Ramona Fradon was one of the most prolific and high profile femaleÂ cartoonists at a time when the comic book field was dominated by men.Â Her illustrative style influenced a generation of Aquaman readers, onlyÂ to gain a larger following when she co-created Metamorpho, one of theÂ most unique characters of comic’s Silver Age. She demonstrated an aptÂ ability to work in multiple genres with a flair for the comedic as seen inÂ Plastic Man and later on Super Friends. She then made her mark byÂ replacing Brenda Starr’s creator Dale Messick on the long runningÂ newspaper strip.
The Art of Ramona Fradon is an in-depth, fascinating retrospective in theÂ legendary illustrator’s own words, shared in conversation with HowardÂ Chaykin (American Flagg!) and accompanied by the finest examples of herÂ work from such classic comics as Adventure Comics, The Brave and theÂ Bold, Brenda Starr, House of Mystery, Metamorpho, Plastic Man, TheÂ Super Friends, World’s Finest Comics, and more!
