Death orbits tangents.

The Woman in Red first appeared in the period known to comic book historians as the Golden Age of Comic Books. Created by writer Richard E. Hughes and artist George Mandel, she first appeared in Thrilling Comics #2 (March 1940), published by Nedor Comics. She is considered the first masked female comic book crime fighting hero.

I started playing with some collage scans, my digital art pieces, a couple of digital copies of illustrations from these early comics. Considering the sequence, I thought they could easily be illustrations for old Saturday Serial Matinee posters  or for weekly advertisements for a  Golden Age Radio Show. I created episode title-taglines using the 3 line haiku structure to accompany each composition.

The Woman in Red never had a chance to cross over into other popular forms of mass media; she didn’t even earn her own comic book title. This post presents artifacts from a what-if-history, that in a small way, corrects this lost opportunity.

Hey Mr. Peabody ! Look what I found.

Hey Mr Peabody 1

What is a Police Public Call Box ? How do you think it got way-back here ?

Hey Mr Peabody - Album Snap1

Fauna can be dangerous. What do you mean ?  Is Fauna some girl ? Girls aren’t dangerous, unless they are Queens like Elizabeth the First or Catherine the Great.

Hey Mr Peabody 2

Lizards aren’t fawns. Bambi is a fawn. Godzilla is a lizard.

Okay, I will stay perfectly still. Is that a special smart camera in your hand ? Looks like a funny pen .

Come back for the next episode when we hear Sherman say, ………     

Wow, it is bigger on the inside.

Come with me K-9 .  Don’t call me Master.  You are far smarter than that Boy.

Okay Doctor, I will stay perfectly still. Is that a special smart camera in your hand ? Looks like a funny pen. Yes I understand, whatever I do , DON’T BLINK.  Is the flash going to be bright or what ? …….

An individuated person can see that the `personality’ is just one of many possibilities, a mask even, that can be put on or put aside appropriate to the conditions which social necessity imposes on us.   – An Implied Space.


Sandman (Wesley Dodds), is a fictional character, a superhero who appears in comic books published by DC Comics. The first of several DC characters to bear the name, he was created by writer Gardner Fox and artist Bert Christman.

Attired in a green business suit, fedora, and gas mask, the Sandman used a gun emitting a sleeping gas to sedate criminals. He was originally one of the mystery men to appear in comic books and other types of adventure fiction in the 1930s but later developed into a proper superhero, acquiring sidekick Sandy, and founding the Justice Society of America.

Every night  I don my mask, just like my old hero The Sandman, and confront death.   When I was much younger, I knew nothing of Sleep Apnea . Strange how dreams can become realities – careful what you wish for, you may find it in your dreams and you better be prepared.
