The villains soon discovered that as payback for being kidnapped and pushed out an airplane, the Blonde in a Red Dress made off with just about everything that wasn’t nailed down.

(Blonde) Bombshells Away!

(Blonde) Bombshells Away! published on 1 Comment on (Blonde) Bombshells Away!

The Blonde in a Red Dress escaped from being tied up in the cockpit just in time to be dangling for her life from the open bomber doors instead. But on the other hand, at least her villainous adversary seems to have forgotten which end of the gun to use.

(Disclaimer: I think this was a cover featuring the Blonde in a Red Dress, but I wasn’t 100% sure because the available scans of this cover online were so heavily faded that the heroine’s hair and dress were the same shade of faded orange as the trees, sky, and everything else! It took some extra Photoshop work to coax some color back to the cover.)

After seeing the lumpy-faced villain sharing the cover with her, the Blonde in a Red Dress gets the embarassing realization that while that she’s supposed to be in an aviation adventure comic, she somehow must have wandered onto the set of a Dick Tracy comic by mistake. Oops!

The Blonde in a Red Dress would like to thank America’s heroic first responders (whom she tends to cross paths with on at least a weekly if not daily basis, given her lifestyle of unrelenting daring danger!)

How she sings as she swings through the air
Look below, there’s her field over there
With her one chute strap gone
She can still carry on
Comin’ in on a wing and a prayer

I’m not sure I’d exactly call that expression a smile, but “Smirking Jack” just doesn’t have the same ring to it. At least the Blonde in a Red Dress seems to be enjoying herself.

“Tearing Lila from the plane, Samson plunged his mighty fist into the heart of the motor.”

So, this time we learn that “Lila” is yet another of the many names of The Blonde in a Red Dress. Other than that — it’s just another day, with yet another near-death experience with aircraft.

Let a smile be your parachute

Let a smile be your parachute published on 2 Comments on Let a smile be your parachute

There are probably safer ways to introduce someone to Gasoline Alley than crashing a flaming airplane into it. And while it’s gentlemanly of Smilin’ Jack to share, I suspect that the Blonde in a Red Dress would have preferred to have a parachute of her own.

(Note: Wasn’t 100% sure if this cover should count towards this site’s criteria, but our panel of judges decided that “strawberry blonde” was close enough.)
