Co-creator of Aqualad and Metamorpho, she the penciller on books in the fifties, sixties and seventies such as Aquaman, Plastic Man, The Fantastic Four and Super Friends, including Wonder Woman, before drawing the Brenda Starr strip for fifteen years. has been interviewed at length by Howard Chaykin for a new book The Art of Ramona Fradon, a retrospective on her career including never before printed eketches. The Art of Ramona Fradon will be a hardcover book that highlights the magnificent career of the artistic legend, plus never-before-seen sketches, from Dynamite Entertainment. She’s quoted by the publisher saying

“I’ve never liked to see my work in print, but the way it’s presented in this book makes me feel proud. The drawings are arranged so attractively on the pages that the not-so-good ones look good and the good ones look really good. It covers so much of my career that there are things I barely remember doing, starting with an unpublished story strip I practiced on before I got into comics. It’s nice to see I’ve improved since then.”
