Women Wednesday: The Tigress #1

The Tigress #1 (August 1992) from Heroic Publishing is one wild comic book. She rips a fellow prisoner's eye out for calling her a pet before telling Doctor Katherine "Kitty" Kaat (lol) that she remembers being the goddess Bast in ancient Egypt. After switching bodies with the psychiatrist, her own body swivels up from old age. She walks out of the prison and arranges a meeting with her arch nemesis, Flare. The Tigress kisses the superheroine before offering her a glass of milk (drugged, of course). She plans of switching bodies with Flare, but finds out that she is possessed by the spirit of Eos, the goddess of the dawn. After a battle on the astral plane, the Tigress manages to defeat Eos and then switches bodies.

This is where it gets really weird, folks.

The Tigress slaps Flare/Eos, who is trapped in the body of Doctor Kaat, before turning her into a house cat.

I really love the artwork by Paul Abrams. There is some cheesy pin up poses of both the Tigress and Flare, which adds to the comic's charm.
