Happy Birthday, Ramona Fradon!

Ramona Fradon was born on October 2, 1926. She was the main artist of AQUAMAN while he was in ADVENTURE COMICS in the mid-1950s, stopping when he got his own title in 1961. Then later she was the main artist on THE SUPER FRIENDS in the mid-1970s. The Super Friends, of course, were Superman Batman and Robin, Wonder Woman, and Aquaman.

I had the distinct pleasure of meeting her at last year's New York City Comic-Con, where I purchased an original drawing from her and had her sign my copies of SUPER FRIENDS. She was definitely one of my favorite artists, and I wish her another happy and healthy birthday!

  1. I had a chance to really talk to her for the first time at the Baltimore Comic-Con this year. I was on staff, and assisting with the panels, so I got a chance to escort her thru the main hall and to the panel spotlighting her career. That will go down as a highlight of the weekend!

    1. Wow that is cool! I had a similar experience with Stan Lee at the Mid-Ohio Con last month. I met her last year in Baltimore and we chatted for several minutes. Very nice lady.
