    Ramona Fradon and Bob Smith Plastic Man #16 Cover Original Art (DC, 1977). After creator Jack Cole, the perfect Plastic Man artist was Fradon, who had defined the similarly weird aspects of Metamorpho during the 1960s. Retired to family-raising life by the early 1970s, Fradon returned with a vengeance on the Plastic Man revival and delivered some of her finest work. This showcase composition is a gem -- featuring not only the rubberoid superhero and rampaging villain Kolonel Kool, but also a hoodlum (lower left) who sports a pair of Fradon's signature fish-eyes. (She did draw Aquaman during the 1950s, remember?) Ink over graphite on paper. The image area measures 10" x 15". The logo and DC bullet are replacement paste-ups. There is some slight tanning with minor discolorations in the lower image area, along with minor corner damage at lower right. Very Good condition.
