Public Domain Appearances

  • Hell-Rider #1-2


  • Skywald did not include a proper copyright notice on its issues of Hell-Rider (it did not consist of the word "copyright"/the symbol for copyright followed by the year of publication and the name of the copyright holders) and thus, because of copyright law at the time, became public domain upon release.
  • The Hell-Rider issues were mature-audience magazines not covered by comic books' Comics Code Authority.
  • Although she was kidnapped more than once, she was no damsel-in-distress and proved herself very heroic in every appearance!
