The Woman in Red began appearing in Thrilling Comics in issue #2, published in 1940. Pics from that issue are shown elsewhere on this website. In this story she is attacked by an African warrior brought to America and put to work for some murdering, diamond stealing bad guys, as a hit man. She is KO'd, choked, zapped with a poison dart and pushed down. There is also a pic of her waking up from one of her KO's. She has a really hard time with this big African warrior wearing only a g-string, but she never gives up, she keeps fighting back and finally she gets a shot off and kills the big fellow, after which she captures the bad guys and puts them all under arrest, acting in her capacity as an undercover agent for the local law enforcement office. One other pic is shown below showing a good shot of her whole body, especially the parts of her beneath the long red floor length cloak that she wears. This is the only pic shown that is not from #5, it's from issue #8, and shows her tossed from a high building to probable death -- but like all sexy superheroines, she survives . . don't they always. Gotta love it. It's included here as a pinup.
