Last September in Pappy's #810 I showed a Captain Fight story from Fight Comics #53, 1947. A reader mentioned that the villainess in that tale, Black Bess, also appeared in this issue of Jumbo Comics, #103, also 1947.
If you look at both stories you see the Black Bess of this Hawk story drawn by R. H. Webb is a sexy highway robber, and in the other, drawn by Jack Kamen, a sexy pirate. They appear to be two characters with the same name. Personally, though, I like the cuts of their jibs, and I'd go down to the sea in ships for either one, or both of them, matey!
