DIANA THE HUNTRESS "Food for Greece"

TV's Hercules: the Legendary Journeys wasn't the first time...
...pop culture tossed anachronisms into classic mythology, as this never-reprinted tale from Charlton's YellowJacket Comics #3 (1944) shows!
Somehow, I don't think the Roman/Greek goddess would actually spout the line "I used to be a Girl Scout!"...
In addition, as we pointed out in Diana's "origin" story HERE, the authors also mixed their Greek and Roman pantheons, but did utilize the correct powers and abilities for the gods and goddesses they used!
Though the writer is unknown, the artist is Leo Morey,
Plus, for the first time, Diana makes the cover of the book...
Art by Ken Battefield
Here's a close-up of the insert shot...
Is it just me or is the left side of her tunic a little...low?
There'll be more never-reprinted tales of Diana the Huntress in the future.
Watch for them!
