Number 1948: Lorna: the terror of the deep, and the shallow boyfriend
Lorna is handy when her boyrfriend, Greg, gets into trouble. Not only does Lorna save him over and over, she loves him. In “Terror of the Deep” she hints that she’d like Greg to propose marriage. Greg is not dumb...he knows what Lorna is doing. He just chooses to change the subject. In those days men were expected to be head of the family, and Greg knew that in a marriage to the superbly capable and resourceful Lorna he would not be the one in charge.
From Lorna, Jungle Girl #8 (1954). Story by Don Rico, art by Werner Roth.
