Scourge of the Yellow Gestapo

Scourge of the Yellow Gestapo published on 1 Comment on Scourge of the Yellow Gestapo

Not sure why the bamboo walls of the hut are red, but it allowed our heroine to try avoiding her captor’s attention by blending into the background using the inherent stealth camouflage of her Red Dress.

“READ THE STORY INSIDE!”

This comic book has reached the point where its cover tagline hyperbole feels as desperate for attention as an early dial-up era webpage with an animated GIF with blinking text that says “Click Here!”

The Clown is Back Again!

The Clown is Back Again! published on 1 Comment on The Clown is Back Again!

The Blonde in a Red Dress, pinned beneath rubble (and cover blurbs), is waiting to be rescued by costumed heroes, who are themselves tied up and waiting for yet another hero to rescue them too?

No wonder the robot in the background is watching this farce play out with haunted, deer-in-the-headlight eyes. Alas, if only there was someone competent who could set him free from the cruel masters who take joyrides in his hollowed-out torso!

(Or… maybe the robot just really hates clowns, and is shellshocked from reading the upper cover blurb?)

United States Secret Service Agent?

United States Secret Service Agent? published on 2 Comments on United States Secret Service Agent?

Another name to add to her list of aliases! According to her exceptionally large ID card, the undercover Blonde in a Red Dress was going by the name of “Jane Dickson” prior to being captured by… um… a Nazi, a Japanese soldier with vampire fangs, and some guy with a green skull for a head?

In this issue: Rip Carson, Tiger Girl, Hooks Devlin, Senorita Rio, Shark Brodie… “and others”?

Sad. It’s the equivalent of ending the Gilligan’s Island song with “and all the rest”.
