BLACK VENUS "Sacrificed to the Flag of the Rising Sun"

Now wearing a costume almost exactly like rival aviatrix Black Angel...
...Black Venus is led into a trap by a devious Japanese commander.
NOTE: contains racial stereotypes that may be NSFW!)
Illustrated by noted cover artist and art director L B Cole, this tale from Aviation Press' Contact Comics #3 (1944) was the beginning of a new direction for the heroine as she became more aggressive in taking on Axis foes instead of simply waiting for them to attack first.
Be here next week, when we present another tale of classic comic grrl power!
