Gwandanaland Comics Cavalcade: Take Flight With Sky Girl This July!
Beat the heat with Gwandanaland Comics this July!
This month’s featured character is Sky Girl. Making her debut in 1944 in the pages of Jumbo Comics #68, Sky Girl was a statement on women in the workforce during World War II. Ginger Maguire chartered planes across the Pacific theater in support of the war effort. In the air, she was known as Sky Girl and was faced with Axis enemy aces determined to keep her from making her vital deliveries to our boys in the Pacific. On the ground, Ginger was desperate to find a husband.
After the war, Sky Girl lost her government job. But she stuck around the airport, becoming a cafe waitress. Now blonde, Ginger still tried to land a man. But thanks to her aviation experience, whenever a air-themed villain reared it’s ugly head, Sky Girl would commandeer a plane to save the day. Unfortunately, Sky Girl must have taken flying lessons from the X-Men as most of the flying machines she piloted ended up as expensive wreckage.
While Sky Girl’s original publisher, Fiction House is no longer in existence, thanks to Gwandanaland Comics, you can own many of her golden age exploits in collected form!
