I give you Honey West

Think equal parts Marilyn Monroe, Emma Peal and Mike Hammer. She first appeared in the 1957 book This girl for hire and went on to appear in 10 more books from 1958 to 1971, and then popped up in a short-lived TV series (produced by Aaron spelling) in the mid-sixties staring Anne Francis-- One of the first TV shows to feature a lead female in the pre-feminist area. Now she will be making her appearance in a series of Comic Book mini series published by Moonstone Books.

This is the first of four covers I done for the series (I will be sharing the other as they get closer to publication) The trick for me was in giving her a slightly more contemporary feel while paying tribute to her past incarnations.
