Pictorial Romances #6, by St. John
The Blonde in a Red Dress was having adventures even from a very young age.
In addition to art classes, our heroine had also signed up for “Swashbuckling Pirate Yarns” (she thought the name was referring to a knitting club.)
The Brunette in a Green Dress suddenly realizes she really shouldn’t have been such a high school bully to the Blonde in a Red Dress.
Awakening adrift at sea, the Blonde in a Red Dress gives an envious glare at “Dr. Strange” for whatever mysterious superpower allows his amazingly stylish hair to remain impervious even to the churning ocean waves and incoming torpedoes.
Luckily, our heroine’s long experience in fending off the unwanted advances of cads in various Romance Comics left her well prepared for grappling with an octopus.
To paraphrase that old quip about Ginger Rogers, the Blonde in a Red Dress not only had to do her own stunts on a sinking rowboat on the open seas, but she apparently had to do it while falling backwards and in high heels.
