This big 20Th issue celebration starts off with a party at the latest place the Femforce call home- an abandoned private school near Orlando, Florida. The occasion? Why, the official swearing in of new members Dragonlfy, Stardust, and Tara.(She hit the ground running with the FF in #1, but was never inducted officially ’till now.)As She-cat drifts away from the revelry and dreams of her adventure back in the Old West, ( in issues #’s 7 & 8 ) she finds herself going back thanks to a favor from time travel expert Dr. Jimenez. In the past, she crosses paths with Buckaroo Betty Bates, a two -fisted young widder women (who looks a lot like Betty Page) who inherited the sheriff’s job in a wide-open town when her husband was killed. Just when it seems the whole thing was a trap set up by Ripjaw and the Black Commando, She-cat wakes up realizing, it was all a dream.
