True Crime Casebook

Hi all, just back from photoshop class with some more retro-style goodies for all you hard boiled enthusiasts out there. Here's my pitch for a Damsel in Distress comic book featuring Sally the Sleuth and similar "lingerie heroines". Naturally, the scenarios would follow the general premise of the old Spicy pulps of the 30s, ie a pretty young thing being threatened with a fate worse than death gets rescued by the hero at the last possible second:

I'll need to do a bit of research to see if Sally is in the public domain; if she isn't, I guess we'll have to alter the strip's title slightly (not an uncommon practice back in the day, BTW). For those with an interest in the historical side of things, this picture is based on the cover of Star Detective Magazine, March 1937 (artist, J.W. Scott).

PS: Leave a message if you're interested in contributing visual content to the book :)
