Comic Strip of the Week - March Madness Week 2

In the second week of spotlighting some of the craziest criminals to face off against the Invisible Scarlet O'Neil we present one of the most gruesome, Ambrose Rhone. Throughout the run of the strip, the tone was usually light and comical even when Scarlet was being threatened by Nazis. Not so in June of 1945. Enter a brute named Ambrose, a psychotic killer who has dismembered his wife, torments his mother-in-law, and abuses the family pooch. Never was Stamm’s art style so stark and nightmarish as Scarlet tries to aid the helpless old woman. It is disturbing tale with a bleak resolution.
