The Black Cat was Hollywood starlet Linda Turner, whose had skills as a stunt woman, as well as expertise in Judo, motorcycle riding, lariat throwing, as well as being trained by her father to be a detective. Knowing the criminal element would be a cowardly and superstitious lot (hmmmm), she became the Black Cat. After smashing her Director’s spy ring, she fought off boredom by fighting crime as The Black Cat.

The Black Cat debuted in a story drawn by Al Gabriele (Sub-Mariner, Miss America). Her own title lasted four issues before moving to Speed Comics a couple of months later. She was Harvey's most popular wartime character — not just the only one to get her own comic (which she finally did in 1946), but also the one that survived longest. Although, by the late '40s, very few costumed heroes were able to sustain themselves.

This splash was drawn by Joe Kubert in the 40’s and is a nice companion to the Gabriele splash in this gallery.

I've always liked this imaginative Black Cat splash and the Skull motif is timeless... a great addition!
