From the Cathy Hill Archive of Unpublished Comics comes â€œThe Lady and the Tigerâ€. This story was drawn before Cathy started the â€œMad Raccoonsâ€ series. Unlike the Raccoons, â€œThe Lady and the Tigerâ€ has no dialog, itâ€™s all action and pantomime. The art was influenced by the work of Al Williamson, and Cathyâ€™s staging and design show traces of Aubrey Beardsley and the psychedelic posters Cathy was designing in those days. The Lady is quite exotic, helmeted barbarians try to capture her on page two. Her tiger companion leaps to her rescue, scattering the abductors. Together they ride into the psychedelic tangle of the jungle. See part Two next time as the tangle relaxes.
