Janet Hetherington & Ronn Sutton at Chicago & Toronto cons in Aug

Janet Hetherington & Ronn Sutton are appearing at the Wizard World Chicago 2012 comic book convention from August 9-12 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL and the Toronto FanExpo 2012 show from August 23-26 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.

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 (Honey West, Forbidden Planet) passes away at age 80

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.

New Hetherington Art for Wonder Woman Day V

Comics creator Janet Hetherington ( Eternal Romance, Elvira: Mistress of the Dark) is contributing two new pieces of original full-color 11" x 17" Wonder Woman art for Wonder Woman Day V, to be held on Sunday, October 24, 2010. 
One piece of this art will be auctioned off in conjunction with the Portland event held from 12 noon to 6 pm at Excalibur Comics, 2444 SE Hawthorne Blvd, Portland, Oregon, while the other will be auctioned at a parallel New Jersey event held at Comic Fusion, 42 Main St., Flemington, New Jersey. 
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!” 
Visit the website ( http://www.wonderwomanmuseum.com/WWDay5/WWDay5.html) for details of the events, auctions and details on how you can bid on the Wonder Woman Day V art.
