Artist Ronn Sutton is ready with an original new art print of a feisty Space Girl battling hungry aliens. Ronn pencilled the art for the 11" x 17" print, which was inked by fellow artist Hilary Barta (who collaborated with Ronn on Elvira, Mistress of the Dark comic stories and a dynamic Fear Agent tale). The art for the print was colored by Jason Millet.
At the show, Ronn will have original comic book art pages and comic books as well as the Space Girl print. Ronn will be happy to provide free autographs. Hilary and Jason also plan to be at the Wizard World Chicago convention. Ronn will have the art print at FanExpo too.
Janet Hetherington, who wrote the Honey West/Kolchak the Night Stalker script that Ronn illustrated earlier this year, will be bringing her new Very Sketchy sketchbook as well as comics and art to both shows. The sketchbook has an area for a personalized sketch and autograph in the front.
The Honey West/Kolchak the Night Stalker comic book is slated to be published by Moonstone Publications in 2013.
Both Ronn and Janet will be available to do commissions at Wizard World Chicago and FanExpo in Toronto.
Anne Francis, who won many a fanboy's heart with her sultry portrayals in the 1956 science fiction classic Forbidden Planet and the 1960s TV show Honey West, has passed away at age 80 from complications related to pancreatic cancer.
Interest in Honey West re-emerged in 2010 with the publication of a new Honey West comic book ( Moonstone) featuring the adventures of the blond detective and her pet ocelot. Artist Ronn Sutton is currently illustrating a three-issue story arc for the comic book written by Elaine Lee which, in the spirit of Forbidden Planet, has Honey investigating mysterious circumstances on the set of a science-fiction movie. 1 Comments

Wonder Woman Day V is deemed a part of national Domestic Violence Awareness Month. This is the fifth year that organizer Andy Mangels has called upon artists to contribute Wonder Woman art for this important cause. Past contributors have included Adam Hughes, Gary Frank, Nicola Scott, Hetherington and many more.
The first four years raised over $89,000 in aid of four domestic violence programs.
The community-based event, from which 100 per cent of proceeds go to registered 501(c)3 charities, is meant as a celebration of the Wonder Woman character and the heroic values shown throughout her history, and of upholding those same values with in the greater community.
However, Mangels says that this is the last year that the event will be Wonder Woman-specific. The website states: “Join us for the FINAL celebration of Wonder Woman Day as it metamorphosizes towards the future... art auctions, guest creators, and costumed characters will mark this as one of the year's most heroic events!”
Ronn Sutton and I had a busy, busy time at Fan Expo in Toronto this past weekend (August 27-29, 2010). We met lots of old friends and new, and did many commissions. You can read about our experiences on my @ Best Destiny bog: http://www.janethetherington.blogspot.com/
