NOT WHO YOU THINK: Black Cat and the Director of Doom!

Long before Felicia Hardy padded around the pages of Marvel Comics...
 ...another Black Cat slinked around comics during the Golden Age!
We presented this original Black Cat's final tale HERE, so let's continue with her second tale (never-reprinted) from Harvey Comics' 100-page Pocket Comics #2 (1941)!
As you might have guessed, Nazi spy/film director Garboil eventually met his fate...
Written by publisher Alfred Harvey and illustrated by co-creator Al Gabrielle, the Black Cat was the most popular of Harvey's pre-humor characters, appearing regularly in Pocket Comics, then Speed Comics, a couple of one-shot appearances in other anthologies, as a regular text feature in Terry and the Pirates, and finally her own title that survived from the Golden Age into the Silver Age.
Be here next week, when we present another tale of classic comic grrl power!
