Madam Satan, seductive servant of the Devil, is one of the great unsung villains of the Golden Age. Her few appearances in Pep Comics were posted on s_d 1.0, way back when. Here's the first of them, from Issue 16 (June 1941), written by Abner Sundell, with art by Harry Lucey. As with all Pep issues up to #71, this comic is in the public domain (scans courtesy of ComicBookPlus.com).

















How indeed? Find out in my next post!

Aside from some apparent issues with borderline necrophilia, not sure that John deserved his fate.

Not that is parents did either I grant you, but as the one who HAS just showed mercy when anger might have made him a killer, I don't think the poor bastard deserved an agonising death.

Well, I hope we've all learned a valuable lesson about necrophilia.

Also, damn, but Tyra deserves an award for incompetence at murder. Not only did her poison fail to kill a senior citizen, it actually strengthened him enough to leave him alive and conscious after a horrible car accident and plunge into a ravine. Never store your strychnine in the Holy Grail, kids!

Honestly, her plan was pretty solid. It was insanely bad luck (or divine intervention, given the premise of the story) that did her in. I mean, what are the odds that the two senior citizens that she lethally poisoned would survive not only the poison, but the incredibly violent car crash and fall into the ravine that she engineered long enough for the person who crashed into them in the first place, who just happened to be the one person that Madam Satan was trying to fool, to climb all the way down and talk to them in person (rather than driving off to find a phone to call the police or paramedics) so that they could tell him her evil scheme?

I mean, what are the odds ....

In an old school horror story? About 1:1.

I'd go so far as to say diabolical intervention, given the narration box tells us about the devil having his evil joke.

Given that everyone ends up dead in the end anyway, I'm inclined to agree with you.

Good, Now all she needs is a kooky catchphrase, a book of devil-themed puns and some kind of silly hat! The world will be DOOMED!

Isn't this the lady who is constantly thwarted by a Friar riding a Donkey?

Yes, one named Brother Sunbeam, if I remember correctly. Although after seeing how Madam Satan has had godawful luck in her schemes since Day 0 even without him running around, I'm not nearly as shocked by that fact as when I first found out about it.
