MADAME STRANGE "Hawaii Take-Over"

She's a super-heroine/spy with no secret identity...
...but she's not someone you want to mess with under any circumstances!
NOTE: may be NSFW due to dialogue about Asian stereotypes common to the era.
The threatened reprisal by Bonza's gang was never carried out since the remaining Madame Strange stories take place in locales other than Hawaii.
Though this never-reprinted tale from Great Comics #1 (1941) was created and published before the US entered World War II, most Americans knew it was only a matter of time before we would enter the war on the side of the Allies.
Madame Strange never used any other name or a disguised secret identity (not even eyeglasses).
Between her costume and (never-explained) greater-than-normal strength and speed, most fans consider her a superheroine.
"Achmed Zudella" was a pen-name for writer/artist Charles "Chuck" Winter.
It was only used on this strip.

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