It began innocently enough, with a raven-haired comic book cover model running afoul of a mummy’s curse and thus requiring an understudy to take her place…
The new golden-haired cover girl could strike a pose just as well as her predecessor, and she quickly proved herself adept at facing down the various monsters that came with the job. Sadly, the same couldn’t be said of her boyfriend.
The blonde in a red dress soon proved herself popular enough to warrant a return appearance! Her boyfriend didn’t. (Unless maybe he ended up as one of the skulls. Comic book cover modeling is such a high-risk profession.)

Ouch! Things didn’t go well when the disgruntled former-cover-girl-in-a-red-dress decided to have words with her blonde successor. Try to patch things up, girls! When cover girl heroines fight, it just means the terrorists undead skull-faced zombies win!
Our heroine really needs to stop walking through graveyards. Nothing good ever seems to come from it. And hey! “Janet Lee”? At last, we know the real name of our mysterious Blonde in a Red Dress! Too bad she’s fated for an untimely end. Whatever will we do for tomorrow’s cover?
