Panel of the Week - Please Don't Scream

This panel from October 1951 represents the later part of Scarlet's daily adventures. Scarlet befriends a man accused of murder and finds herself face-to-face with the culprit. She did manage to evade the murderer, but she could not avoid the fate of being bumped from her own strip. Fear not! You can read the whole adventure in all its four-color glory in the archives of

Panel of the Week - Two Ton Tin

It's Invisible Woman vs Iron Man! Whose side are you on? This week's panel from October 6, 1943 features Scarlet battling "Two Ton Tin". The robot was created by Wilbur Wilt, who was attempting to create the perfect "iron man," but accidently brought to life a woman-hating metal monster.

Panel of the Week - Sweet Ambrose

This week's panel is from a 1945 Sunday strip featuring Ambrose, a deranged killer who murders his wife and buries her near the home of her mute grandmother. Never was Stamm's style so creepy and nightmarish! This storyline is one of the most brutal we've found and the idea of running it today in the Sunday funny pages is impossible.

In Memoriam Dave Stevens 1955 - 2008

This week we were sad to learn of the passing of artist/creator Dave Stevens.

Dave was an incredible talent, probably best known as the creator of The Rocketeer and his glamour girl art. There aren't too many others I could name that could draw 'em prettier! We are sad that we no longer have the opportunity to see a Dave Stevens version of our Invisible Scarlet O'Neil, but after reading various accounts online, we are even sadder to hear that the industry has lost a good soul.

We understand that Stevens’ mother has requested that in lieu of flowers, people make donations to the Hairy Cell Leukemia Research Foundation

Not much else to say about the man except check out his art. Dave Stevens gave us images that will last forever. Check out his stuff at

Panel of the Week - Hip Hip Hooray!

During the fifteen year run of the Invisible Scarlet O'Neil, there wasn't a large number of recurring villains. However, there was one that was particularly large. "Hippy the Hurricane", a former wrestler gone bad. In this February 15, 1943 panel, Hippy confronts our heroine after escaping the stir. This frame clearly demonstrates the importance of not being seen.

Panel of the Week - Great Scott!

This week's panel from a 1943 daily strip provides more evidence that Scarlet was one of the earliest superheroes in comics. As her powers fail, she utters the classic line, "Great Scott!"

Scarlet Goes Hollywood!

I'm pleased to announce the next stop on the Invisible Scarlet tour 2008 is Wizard World Los Angeles March 14 -16! Who knows? Maybe our gal will be discovered by some big producers and get to be on the big screen! If you're at the show, please stop by the Atlantis Studios booth! We'll have plenty of copies of "Untold Origin" on hand as well as information about Scarlet's future. Hope to see you there!
