"Ramona Fradon was one of the most prolific and high profile female cartoonists at a time when the comic book field was dominated by men. Her illustrative style influenced a generation of Aquaman readers, only to gain a larger following when she co-created Metamorpho, one of the most unique characters of comic's Silver Age. She demonstrated an apt ability to work in multiple genres with a flair for the comedic as seen in Plastic Man and later on Super Friends. She then made her mark by replacing Brenda Starr's creator Dale Messick on the long running newspaper strip. The Art of Ramona Fradon is an in-depth, fascinating retrospective in the legendary illustrator's own words, shared in conversation with Howard Chaykin (American Flagg!) and accompanied by the finest examples of her work from such classic comics as Adventure Comics, The Brave and the Bold, Brenda Starr, House of Mystery, Metamorpho, Plastic Man, The Super Friends, World's Finest Comics, and more!"

A noirish futuristic world founded by a religious cult that left Earth on New Year's Eve, 1999 is the setting for a provocative detective thriller. SON OF SUPERMAN writers Howard Chaykin and David Tischman join artist Rick Burchett (BATMAN: GOTHAM ADVENTURES) for an offbeat mixture of classic film noir, science fiction and psychological thrillers. Featuring covers pencilled by Chaykin and inked by Burchett, PULP FANTASTIC follows the adventures of dashing detective Vector Pope on an artificial planet run by diehard religious fanatics who left Earth at the end of 1999. What appears to be a simple missing-persons case quickly turns seamy and steamy as Pope has dangerous run-ins with the law and a drug-addicted android whose body is a deadly weapon. It's a violent, passionate and humorous story illustrated in a quasi-animated style which provides a unique counterpoint to its lurid backdrop of sex, corruption, church politics, and hypocrisy.
