COMPLIMENTS OF THE DOMINO LADY
by Lars Anderson,
illustrated by Steranko The original femme fatale!
Six stories featuring the sexy masked manhunter -- prowling the soundstages and penthouses of 1936 Hollywood. A beautiful young woman falling in and out of love, scarred by personal tragedy, who vows to dismantle a crooked political machine -- one corrupt official and ruthless gangster at a time.
Steranko provides a new cover, but its the "title page dramatizations" that electrify this collection. Steranko revives the Domino Lady with the beauty and style in which she was created by pulp artist Norman Saunders. Each double-page illustration introduces a story with art deco magic and astract mystery. Describing the illustrations can't do them justice -- but Steranko certainly does justice to the lovely Ellen Patrick, alias the siren of justice, Domino Lady.
Stories by Lars Anderson, illustrations by Steranko. Six stories, Steranko cover and title pages, original pulp illustrations, afterward "Who Was Lars Anderson?" by Will Murray.
That masked manhunter, The Domino Lady, takes a vacation from the soundstages and back alleys of Los Angeles for San Diego and the California Pacific Northwest Exhibition. Overseeing the exhibition as one of the investors, Ellen Patrick learns of
a jealousy-driven plot to destroy the exhibition -- and the city's economy!
Death On Exhibit represents a bold new project for The Domino Lady -- it's a full-length adventure written as a radio drama from the 1930s! Part One "All's Fair In War" appeared in the Moonstone Books anthology Domino Lady: Sex As a Weapon. It was eventually recorded with a full-cast by the AudioComics Company in San Francisco. Now, for the first time, you can read the full-story ... A One-Million Dollar Bill, John Dillinger's armored car, and a villain who redefines "entitlement."
Includes the scripts: All's Fair In War, Moxie's Gamble, Blood Is Thicker, and The Domino Lady's Deadline.
