SUTTON Ron

Ron Sutton met Janet Hetherington at a comics convention. She was carrying with her a sketch for which she needed a skilled artist to complete. She approached Ron and asked him to finish it. He agreed and out of this first encounter blossomed a romance and a partnership.

She and Ron Sutton created a humorous cartoon strip based partly on themselves called “Jannie Weezie” which appeared in the Ottawa Citizen in 1994. See JANNE WHEEZIE. They also created a dark character called “Spinnerette” See SPINNERETTE

In addition to those listed below, he has worked on Elvia, Mistress Of The Dark for about nine years, and has recently (2018) been drawing a comic strip adaption of Edgar Rice Burrough’s The Man-Eater.
