YANKEE GIRL "Cat Show Killer"

For a superheroine who appeared only twice in new stories...
...once in the Golden Age and once in the Silver Age, Yankee Girl's had a hell of a run!
This purr-fectly entertaining tale appeared in Chesler/Superior's Dynamic Comics #23 (1947), illustrated by Ralph Mayo.
It's been reprinted several times since by various publishers.
As was the case with many Golden Age characters, the first story is not the origin, and the character is already established and active.
There was another Yankee Girl tale produced during the Golden Age, but it didn't see print until the Silver Age.
We'll be presenting it in the future.
No origin story was ever done by the strip's creators, but other writers/artists continued with new tales from the 1990s to the present, including an origin.

NOTE: There was a previous Yankee Girl from the same publisher, who we'll be presenting here, probably around Labor Day weekend.

Be here next week, when we present another tale of classic comic grrl power!
