Today in Comics History, March 27: Happy birthday, Talisa Soto!

Happy birthday today to actress and model Talisa Soto from Mortal Kombat, Mortal Kombat Annihilation, The Mambo Kings, Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever, Vampirella, Harts of the West, and as Bond Girl Lupe Lamora in 1989's Licence to Kill! And the movie adaption to comics, too!

from Licence to Kill graphic novel (Eclipse, 1989); script by Richard Ashford; (adaptation); breakdowns by Mike Grell; pencils by Chuck Austen, Tom Yeates, and Stan Woch; inks by Tom Yeates and Stan Woch; colors by Sam Parsons, Sally Parsons, Mel Johnson, and Reuben Rude, letters by Wayne Truman

Altho' the graphic novel prominently features Lupe Lamora, it doesn't have any appearance by her pet iguana, and that's a darn shame.

Happy birthday, Talisa!
