AMAZON ART #37

Oddly, I just realized I never did a post on the 1970s karate-chopping version of Wonder Woman, which was certainly notable for action packed scenes.








Parenthetically, this was one of the first times that Catwoman began to be portrayed as a tuff girl with karate-skills, though the WW-CW matchup doesn't amount to much.

And even Lois Lane briefly got in on the girlfight action.

Just started investigating the adventures-- sadly, no longer regularly published-- of HACK/SLASH, starring monster-killing maiden Cassie Hack and her partner Vlad. Here she's seen dealing out justice to Chucky himself, which might qualify for one of my "best crossovers."

If I'd kept going with the chronological study of femmes formidables, I imagine I would've found space for the short-lived LADY DANGER, who appeared in 10 issues of SENSATION COMICS in the late 1940s.

I read the first collection of THE UNSTOPPABLE WASP. Nothing special in the story dept., just another wannabe "second MS. MARVEL," but the heroine uses krav maga to defeat a big lady wrestler-villain.

I noticed I don't have a heading for "She-Hulk," so here's a nice scene of her clouting her perpetual adversary Titania.


And here's one of the first fistic encounters between the two, from SECRET WARS, apparently taking place after Shulky has cleaned house with the Wrecking Crew.

ANGEL AND THE APE was a short-lived DC feature that teamed up Angel O'Day-- a hot, martially-trained blonde-- with Sam Simeon, an intelligent but inarticulate ape. The series was never as funny as its writer thought it was, but the art by Bob Oskner retains a trippy charm.

Just realized I'd never done a pic of the second DC Huntress, whom I liked better than the Helena Wayne version.
