Synopsis: Lauren Mason never wanted to be a heroine, but when Merlin gave her super-powers, what choice did she have? See the buxom, brunette and somewhat bumbling YANKEE GIRL in this special volume featuring THREE all new adventures, plus several out-of-print stories from the 1990’s and other YG rarities.
Special Notes: YANKEE GIRL is an actual Golden Age heroine( from a long-defunct publisher) who made two- that’s right, TWO actual appearances in print in the 1940’s. Since AC “revived” her in 1990, she has gone on to become one of our most popular, most requested guest-stars and back-up features, appearing in dozens of stories across numerous titles. As the good-hearted “fish out of water” in the hero game who tries hard but never gets it quite right, she has really resonated with our readers. In addition to NEW adventures (one plotted by AC publisher Bill Black himself) illustrated by “girl art” masters Eric Coile and Rock Baker, this volume will features number of rare YANKEE GIRL items, including her FIRST AC solo story from 1991, out of print and unseen since the mid-1990’s!!
