Planet Stories’ publisher, Fiction House, also put out a sister line of science fiction comics called Planet Comics. A lot of these covers show the kind of women who filled the pages of sci-fi in the olden days better than I can do justice to in words.
Oh, hey, look who has their hand on the gun that’s blowing up the solar lens focused on earth!’
That dude will get there eventually, but not before that lady has zapped the monster a few times.
I guess with no man around, she’ll have to zap the 3 headed T-Rex herself!
Women are crack shots with ray guns, too!
That is going to hurt…
She looks more mad than afraid; Mars God of War is grimacing because he’s about to get zapped.
ADDENDUM: John C. Wright beat me to this years ago. Thanks for pointing this out, Scholar-at-Arms!
