HONEY WEST "Fall Guy" Part 1

She's the subject of our most popular posts ever... who are we to deny our frantic fans another look at her?
Methinks the manager doth protest too much...and so does Honey!
Story for this never-reprinted, one-shot from Gold Key Comics (1966) by Paul S. Newman, art by Jack Sparling.
Anne Francis took instruction in Okinawa Te under Sensei Gordon Doversola for a couple of months before shooting began.
The TV series the comic is based on ran only one year and Anne Francis won a Golden Globe and was nominated for an Emmy.
The Executive Producer of the show was Aaron Spelling, who later created Charlie's Angels.
The complete series is available on DVD in the US from VCI.
The British Region 2 DVD set from Delta Entertainment also contains the Burke's Law episode "Who Killed the Jackpot?" which served as a "backdoor pilot" for the character.
Most of the novels have been reprinted, and a new comic series is available from Moonstone Comics.
There's been talk of a feature film based on the novels, but it's currently in Development Hell.
