Fiction House comics are known for their emphasis on Good Girl art, but their magazines had plenty of bad @$$ heroines to balance out the cheesecake.
One of the publishers most memorable characters was Senorita Rio, a popular singer/actress who doubled as a spy for the United States government. Thanks to the work of such artists as Nick Cardy and Jerry Grandenetti, Rio was as stylish and glamorous as any real life film starlet. However, the young woman was also more than able to dole out heaping helpings of Golden Age justice.
The following story, lovingly crafted by the talented – if nameless – denizens of the Iger Studio, originally appeared in Fight Comics #56 (Fiction House, 1948).
