Reprint This! Señorita Rio

Fiction House produced some amazing comic books back in the 40s and 50s, with several great ongoing strips. One of my favourites (from the little that I've seen) is Señorita Rio, which ran in Fight Comics. Our heroine is actress Rita Farrar, who worked as an agent for the U.S. government. I love a good spy book, and this one is full of intrigue and exotic locales. The scripts are pretty standard stuff, but the artwork is to die for. The page to the left was drawn by the great Bob Lubbers, but much of the run was drawn by the forgotten grand dame of the Golden Age: Lily Renee. AC Comics has reprinted some of the stories in recent years, but it would be wonderful to see them all collected in a single volume.

AC did put out a graphic novel devoted to her in the 1990s'!
