Magazine Cover Comics: The Countess and the Cowboy

Russell Patterson was still in the phase where his women look like extras in a zombie film when he did The Countess and the Cowboy for King Features from August 14 to October 16 1932. Therefore, with just a little imagination, you can add a whole additional layer of very creepy subtext to this otherwise bland tale of romance.

The above sample is the final page in the series, so SPOILER WARNING — the guys get the gals and they live happily ever after. Who woulda guessed?
