In an earlier post I stated that I never knew when a "damsel-in-distress" sitch would manifest itself. I've culled a few from romance comics, of all places. Here's another find from the DCM and courtesy of Craig Yoe. From My Romantic Adventures #50 (Best Syndicated Features, Inc. under American Comics Group~Oct.-Nov., 1954). For mood music, may I suggest playing "Crazy Bitch" from Buck Cherry in the background...ahem. Anyway, in the story here, Ruth is a victim of her own mind-set...thinking she's inherited her father's insanity. WARNING! Abuse panels! Straightjacket panels! Strong-arming panels! Bonus cover and detail panels follow in this self-restored thriller. Read on...
