The hero is determined,

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.

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.
