Apparently, on the way down from the roof, the Grim Reaper handed off the Blonde in Red back to the Black Terror just in time to pay a visit to the poorly dressed friends of the gangsters who started this mess.

The Black Terror and Yellowjacket were both so distracted fighting bad guys, they let themselves get upstaged by The Grim Reaper — the only superhero who bothered to save the Blonde in Red from her rooftop peril!

It looks like the Blonde in a Red Dress is just a hop, skip and jump back to dry land and away from the pursuing battleship. Now if only she had the invulnerable-hairstyle powers of the superhero from yesterday’s cover.

Speaking of superheroes: Looking up the details of the issue, it appears that this newly arrived hero is known as “The Black Cowl”. I feel silly for not realizing that right away — it’s so obvious, what with his bright blue and red costume.

At this point, the Blonde in Red should seriously consider having handles added to her dress, given how often she’s been carried like luggage.

Not sure if she’s still unconscious from yesterday’s cobra venom, or if she’s just taking a nap at the end of a long week.

“The Cobra’s poisoned nails clawed closer to the girl’s throat as Magno and Davey crashed through the tunnel to save her.”

And in a dramatic change of pace from earlier this week, the Blonde in a Red Dress finds herself being carried by a villain rather than a hero.

It’s the third day in a row that the Blonde in a Red Dress has been handed off like a baton at a relay race for superheroes. Have her feet even touched the ground at all this week?

“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.)
