Mary's hail of bullets

Mary eats lead

This charming two panel sequence from Shazam! #17 (February 1975) shows the World’s Mightiest Girl, Mary Marvel, disposing of a hail of bullets in a decidedly marvelous manner. Go girl!

Art by the wonderful, and extremely underrated, Bob Oksner. The story was by uber-fan, and long-time DC editor, E Nelson Bridwell, a master at crafting the kind of stories that gladdened the heart of the jaded Silver Age reader.
