ALL-NEW, never-before-seen!! Not a SINGLE reprint!! Just inside a breathtaking jungle-themed, digitally-painted cover by guest-artist Gene Gonzalez is another top-flight potpurri of great contemporary “good girl” art comics action!!! Open with a retro SHE-CAT tale set in 1952, and co-starring Miss Masque. “Death of the Goddess” features our ferocious feline’s second encounter with the OTHER cat-deity- inspired female, Bastis- which takes place on board a luxury cruise ship. Written by Chris Irving, with art by Larry Guidry & Jeff Austin, it’s a film-noire mood masterpiece. Then, MS. VICTORY fights side-by-side with hubby PARAGON to stop an evil madman’s bid to take control of a US Army base, and the offbeat conclusion leaves Joan with a strange secret that she may well keep from even her “better half”. Written by Chad Halcom, with art by Halcom & Mark Heike. Then, Gene Gonzalez teams with writer Paul Monsky on “Rio Diablo” in a retro story picking up from events way back in Femforce Special #2. That sultry super-spy RIO RITA comes across an ally while facing off with gansters in the South American jungles- none other than IRISH of the JUNGLE!! Plus, another Monsky-wrtten piece, a TARA illustrated text story, “The Victor & The Vanquished”, with art by Ed Coutts. Finally, our masked heroine escapes certain death to neutralize four vicious mafiosos in “Revenge of the Blue Bulleteer”, written by Enrico Teodorani, with art by Marco Caldi. 44 pages, black & white with color covers; standard comic-book size, saddle- stitched. Printed in 2006.
