One of the joys of doing a blog like this is discovering people who, all too briefly, worked in comics...
...then moved on, sometimes without a trace!
This never-reprinted tale from Pacific's Vanguard Illustrated #4 (1984) is written and illustrated by Ruth Raymond.
It's her only comics credit, and, sadly, I can't find a single reference to her outside of the Grand Comics Database!
Was "Ruth Raymond" a pseudonym?
Both the scripting and art, though a tad awkward, show enormous potential.
It's sad to think this talented creative wasn't given a chance to grow.
If anybody has any info, please leave a link in the comments section!
