A BELATED BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION OF THE GREAT RAMONA FRADON
Ramona Fradon is one of the great living legends of comics, a creator with an instantly recognizable style who has worked on some of DC Comics‘ best-loved series — and co-created a few classic characters along the way. Her crisp, lyrical line has elevated every book she’s touched over her six-and-a-half decades in the business, and her work continues to influence and inspire creators to this day.
Fradon graduated from Parsons School Of Design in 1950, and began working at DC almost immediately, pencilling the Shining Knight backup story in Adventure Comics #165 – and when that feature was replaced by Aquaman two issues later, Fradon found her first signature character.
To mark the occasion of Fradon’s recent birthday, we’ve compiled a small gallery of her art, and assembled a few friends to join us in celebrating her life and work.
Huuuuuuuuuuuge influence of mine !
A giant. So, so good.
