The audacious exploits of ten great adventurous female
stars from the Golden Age of comic strips.
In the 1920s they were socialites and flappers. In the 1960s they were
homemakers and heartthrobs. But from the late 1930s to the early
1950s, female stars of the newspaper comic strips were detectives,
spies, soldiers of fortune, even superheroes. Accomplishing everything
the male comics stars of the time achieved, except they did it
in high-heels and flowing skirts. Follow the daring exploits of these
smart, tough, independent, AND sexy Dauntless Dames.
Both a product of their era and ahead of their time, the women
in these stories gave their audience just what they needed. Through
the Sunday Comics readers could escape from the woes of the
Depression, travel to exotic foreign lands, feel the glamor and gangsters of the
entertainment world, and support the Allied efforts in World War II.
Presented in an extra-large format, here are the colorful, pulse-pounding tales
of nine incredible women, both known and unknown to comics fans. And most
are reprinted here for the first time in three-quarters of a century! The book also
includes a special bonus section with a dozen paper doll cutouts starring the most
popular women comic strip characters of the day.
