St. John Publications came out in 1953 with one of the best good girl art issues of the entire golden age -- it was a remake of an old star of the early 40's who appeared in Punch Comics as Rocketman and his sexy partner Rocket Girl. St. John renamed her Jet Girl and she was sexier than ever. In this, the second of three terrific stories to appear in issue #1, the zippy duo investigate a traveling circus which has been having a number of fatal "accidents" on their premises. The co-ed team decide that the "accidents" are intentional and decide to snoop around the tent of the promotional agent who does the advertising for the circus. Turns out he is intentionally causing the "accidents" to happen just for "thrills" and because it draws big crowds to the circus. In the process of searching his tent, Jet Girl is hand gagged and dragged to a "ferris wheel" and strapped to the giant gear that turns the wheel in order to be spun to her death. Tech Carson, her mate, searches for her, finds her, rescues her and defeats her captors . . . peace and justice once again prevailing. Some great pics of Jet girl grabbed, hand gagged hauled away and tied to the ferris wheel gear. I love her skin tight yellow costume . . . it's as if she is wearing nothin' at all! I hope you enjoy this as much as I do.
P.S. I'll also be posting at a later time some pics from the 3rd story in this same phenomenal issue which came out only 6 months before the ridiculous and now defunct (as of Jan. 2010) Comic Book Code came out and ruined everything for the next 30 plus years for us sleepy comic book afficionados. May good girl art live forever!! And enjoy.
