Ramona Fradon

My favorite moment at Baltimore Comicon this past September was hanging out with one of THE all-time Silver Age comic book artists, Ramona Fradon, who co-created METAMORPHO and AQUA-LAD, and drew perennial runs on AQUAMAN, PLOP, and took over BRENDA STARR chores in the '80s/'90s. Ramona was kind enough to indulge my questions and overt adulation. She still draws as great as she ever has and remains a constant source of inspiration to me.
