Señorita Rio -- May 19, 2015


The cover of Fight Comics number 47, from December, 1946, featured a cover drawn by Lily Renee, one of the rare female comic book artists in the early industry.  Her character, Señorita Rio, was beautiful and fun.  Fiction House comics were famous for having lovely women on the covers.  Notice that, in a reversal of usual practice, the man is in peril and the woman is defending him.
