Panel of the Week - New York State of Mind

On August 25, 1941, Scarlet took her first trip to New York City, and it was indeed full of excitement and thrills! This weekend, the thrill is back as she returns to the Big Apple to attend the New York Comic Con at the Jacob K. Javits Center in Midtown Manhattan April 18-20. Michael Gordon, the writer of The Untold Origins of Invisible Scarlet O'Neil will be appearing at the Atlantis Studios booth throughout the weekend. Stop by and say "Hi" and chat about Scarlet stories both new and old. And if you don't already have a copy of the Untold Origins book, he'll have plenty on hand!

Panel of the Week - Me & My Shadow

In this panel from December 1941, Scarlet proves she's not afraid of her Shadow! Actually, her foe in this arc is a disguised criminal trying to take over an invisible ink factory. Russell Stamm frequently used pop culture references in the Scarlet strips and I'm sure his readers were all to familiar with this pulp character who was created nearly a decade before Scarlet due to his extremely popular radio series. The Shadow has been referred to as the "invisible avenger" who possessed "the mysterious power to cloud men's minds, so they could not see him." Exactly how much the character influenced the creation of Scarlet is hard to say, but it was nice to find this nod among the early strips.
