Miss Cairo Jones, comics' FIRST female detective!

Created by Bob (Supergirl) Oksner, Miss Cairo Jones was supposed to be a male detective, but because fiction in general, and comics in particular, were already flooded with them, Cairo became a female detective!
Along with new writer Jerry Albert, Oksner illustrated the strip's entire run from 1945 to 1947.
Miss Jones made only one appearance outside of her newspaper comic strip, in a one-shot comic book reprinting the first strip storyline. It is from that issue that we've digitized and remastered the cover art that Atomic Kommie Comics™ now re-presents as part of our Heroines™ line of kool kollectibles which also includes Jane Arden: Crime Reporter, Cave Girl, Jet Dream & Her StuntGirl Counter-Spies, Friday Foster, Miss Fury, Miss Masque (Masquerade), Molly O'Day: Super-Sleuth, Annie Oakley, Phantom Lady, Tiger Girl, and UnderCover Girl!

For all aficionados of the Golden Age of Comics, we proudly present...

PLUS calendars featuring the following SOLO heroes...

The Green Lama
And, for those, who missed it the first time around (both of you)...the ORIGINAL Lost Heroes calendar, repurposed for 2009!
Note: After July 30th, calendars on the linked website should read 2009, not 2008! However, PoD supplier CafePress isn't always as prompt on implementing and updating promised template changes as they should be. If it does read 2008, don't despair! Just bookmark the page and come back in a day or so to try again! (and my apologies in advance if that's what happens!)
And, as we always say; BUY PROJECT SUPERPOWERS!
If it wasn't for Alex Ross reintroducing these cool characters in all-new adventures, they'd just be fading four-color memories for old fanboys like us here at Atomic Kommie Comics™ !
